322. Recycling Plastic Bottles

Description

To succeed in this topic, you need to:

  • Be familiar with polymerisation: the combination of many monomers to produce polymers through addition polymerisation and condensation polymerisation.
  • Be familiar with hydrolysis processes used to break condensation polymers into their constituent monomers.
  • Be familiar with the increased use of plastics and plastic bottles and the issues relating to plastic waste.

After working through this Chemistry Factsheet, you will:

  • Be able to describe the different polymers and additives used in the manufacture of plastic bottles.
  • Be able to describe the mechanical and chemical processes used to identify, separate and potentially recycle chemical components used in the manufacture of plastic bottle.
  • Be aware of the challenges relating to separating and recycling components used in plastic bottles.
