Team of French researchers at Purdue University has developed a new technology that converts plastic waste into useful polymer or convert into clean fuel.

The researchers claimed the new technology targets polypropylene, a type of plastic used in the manufacture of toys and plastic bags, in which water is heated under high pressure to a very high temperature to turn plastic into fuel Similar to “gasoline” can be used in the operation of traditional vehicles.

 

“Our strategy is to drive recycling, and to convert polypropylene waste into several useful products, such as polymers, clean fuels, and can be used as a catalyst for recycling,” said Linda Wang, a researcher at Purdue University in France and head of the research team who reached the new technology in a press release.

 

“Our transformational technology is to increase the profits of recycling companies and reduce plastic waste globally”, said Linda

According to the new research, waste disposal centers have 5 billion tons of plastic waste and 23% polypropylene.

 

The possibility of converting it into valuable products creates a huge incentive for recovery and reuse.
