Plastic Recycling Today

Recycling is environmentally sound and better than burning
Recycling requires approximately 50 % less energy than the production of primary plastic. The energy for the production of plastic out of oil is therefore retained. A variety of life cycle assessments demonstrate the ecological benefits of plastic recycling, especially the reduction of emissions in manufacturing.
Plastic waste accounts for almost 30% of the produced by the waste incineration plants environmentally relevant emissions. Hazardous waste and air pollution are the unfortunate remnant of this disposal route. Under pressure from the legislature, the public and the industry one wants to improve their environmental impact. This is possible by increasing the mechanical recycling by reducing the plastic away from the energy recovery plants and the landfills.
