Chemical Recycling is the use of chemical processes to depolymerize waste plastic into useful monomers or other products that have improved purity over the original waste plastic. This process allows the re-use of the waste plastic, either to make new plastic or to make new polymers with new uses. Plastics are used as materials throughout our world in applications such as coatings, molded parts, packaging, insulation, adhesives and composites just to name a few. Unfortunately, once they are used, the vast majority of plastics end up in landfills, or worse, as plastic pollution in our environment.
A chemical recycling expert will usually have one or more degrees in either chemistry or polymer science, combined with extensive experience in developing polymers or monomers for various applications using recycled plastics. This type of consultant will be able to provide guidance on how to best design and commercialize chemical recycling processes and products that can help to solve the world’s plastic pollution problem. They will also be able to assist with developing valuable new products made using chemically recycled plastics.
