This edition of the Plastics Advisor TOE profiles plastic recycling methods and sustainable plastic alternatives. Recycled plastics are those that are subjected to plastic waste recovery and then processed for use in main stream applications. The plastics that are mainly recycled are polyethylene terephthalate, high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene, polypropylene, nylon, and polystyrene. The key application segments where recycled plastics are used are packaging, construction,and automobiles. The key industry drivers are the increased prices of virgin plastics, environmental factors, and better quality of recycled plastics.
Plastics Advisor TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights of various plastics and composites and also analyses their impact across various industries.
The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and their impact and applications across industries.
