Recycling all forms of waste is becoming increasingly important as the continued use of land-fill is questioned. Plastics, by their varied chemical nature, present unique problems. Chemical Aspects of Plastics Recycling reviews the developments in plastics recycling in the UK and Continental Europe. Innovative identification and separation techniques are addressed, compatibilities for combined recycling are investigated, descriptions of alternative approaches and uses are given and individual classes of plastics are discussed. Full of up-to-date information, Chemical Aspects of Plastics Recycling is essential reading for anyone involved in plastics recycling and waste management, as it affords a valuable overview of the scale of the problem in Europe and the targets that have been suggested for years to come.
