The most significant hindrance to efficient recycling is human error and judgement, due to laziness and a lack of knowledge.
Through Recycling Technologies, plastic can be reverse engineered into its original form, oil. In depolymerisation, plastic is broken down into 'Plaxx' by thermal cracking.
PureCycle Technologies attempts to address this problem by using advanced technology to strip plastic waste and transform it into a resin base for new plastic products.
Studies have shown that some ocean microbes have evolved to eat our single-use plastics and can degrade up to ten different types.
