Since thermoplastic polymers can be melted and reformed, they are easily recycled. However, their properties do degrade with each reuse. Thermosetting polymers are much more difficult to recycle. Some of them can be ground up and used as filler for other processes, and, on a case-by-case basis, some can be processed to be broken down into their underlying base units which can be reused. Another approach to reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in our landfills is the development of biodegradable plastic which can be made to breakdown (be compostable). In addition, bioplastics often come from renewable raw materials, making them sustainable in nature.The course will be covered in six parts namely introduction to polymer recycling and waste management, types of recycling, equipment/machinery used in recycling, recycling of urban plastic waste, recycling of specific polymers, and tools for combating plastic waste as alternatives to single use plastics.

What Will
You Learn?

  • Define various methods of plastic recycling and its importance in modern day’s life.
  • Compare recycling and waste management technologies for various polymers.
  • Identify the importance of plastics recycling and waste management in various sectors of application.
  • Analyze the properties and performance of plastics along with its contribution to the properties after recycling.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of plastic recycling and waste management methods.
  • Design a recycling plan for plastic product based on its applications.

Who this
course is for!

  • Any aspiring technologist who wants to enter the polymeric industry dealing in plastics recycling, plastic production such as injection, extrusion, rotational, blow molding, etc.
  • Production/ R & D technicians/ Quality Control from the processing and manufacturing and associated polymer industries.
