Recycling

  • Products made with bio-based equivalents of conventional polymers (such as bio-PE, bio-PET, bio-PVC) do not differ from fossil based products when it comes to mechanical recycling.
  • Other biopolymers like PLA can be also recovered with mechanical recycling, especially when sufficient volumes of homogenous waste material streams are available, either through separate collection or through sorting routines.
  • Feedstock recovery is currently applied to polylactic acid polymers (PLA). PLA can be hydrolyzed back into its monomer lactic acid.

  • Plastic whisper brakes in freight trains are only half as loud as conventional brakes.
