Sorting through Plastic Waste – Is Chemical Recycling a Solution?

This report examines the technical, economic and business aspects of chemical recycling of PET, PS and mixed plastics (plastics to fuel). Selected technology developers of chemical recycling are profiled and ranked under different criteria. The economics for chemically recycling several types of plastic waste are provided for different geographic regions, and compared to the production of virgin material by conventional technology. In addition, the report includes an analysis of the MSW stream and the economics for the incineration of waste with energy recovery.
