Publisher Description

This book shows the true and often-underestimated market potential of plastics recycling, with analysis from economic, ecological, and technical perspectives. It is aimed at both technical and non-technical readers, including decision makers in material suppliers, plastic product manufacturers, governmental agencies, educators, and anyone with a general interest in plastics recycling.

An overview of waste handling systems with a focus on the U.S. market is provided. Different methods of waste handling are compared from both economic and ecological perspectives. Since plastic waste recycling is essential from an ecological point of view, common strategies and new approaches to both increase the recycling rate and improve recycling economically and technically are presented. This includes processing and material properties of recycled plastics. Finally, a worldwide outlook of plastic recycling is provided with analysis of additional worldwide markets, encompassing highly developed, fast-developing, and less developed countries.

This revised and expanded second edition also contains a new section on fiber-reinforced plastics and
considerations for recycling them as well as numerous updates on the data and the context analyzed
throughout the book. The spreadsheets used in the economic analyses are also offered as a bonus for
the reader to download from plus.hanser-fachbuch.de/en.

True to the authors’ mission, this book is printed on recycled paper.
