About plastic bottle recycling

Recycling of plastic bottles refers to the reuse of plastic material and hence to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills by ultimately converting them into lower or same grade plastic bottles. These bottles are used for various applications depending on their properties. Most plastics are semi-porous and absorb molecules of food or beverage contained. The residue removal is a very tedious task, and any additional heating may damage the plastic. Most recycled plastics are mainly used for making low-grade products. In order to convert plastic bottles into food-grade plastic, the bottles are hydrolyzed to monomeric form and finally passes through purification and re-polymerization process before converting to a new form.
