Summary

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.
