Physical & Chemical Recycling of Plastic

As the use of plastics grows at an unprecedented rate, millions of tonnes of plastic waste are either landfilled, incinerated or leaked into oceans, thereby significantly contributing to environmental pollution. In response, plastic recycling is gaining prominence as a means of dealing with the problem of plastic waste on a global scale. Changing consumer attitudes and stringent government legislation will continue to drive growth in the plastic recycling industry.


To recycle plastics effectively, filtration is an essential step as it affects the final quality. The below figure displays the plastic value chain and the currently available approaches to recycling plastics - Physical and chemical recycling - and where Pall can offer its expertise.
