Plastic Recycling: How Modern Technology Could Reignite the Industry

Plastic recycling could play a vital role in helping the world handle escalating plastic production. However, despite the clear need, plastic recycling rates have remained stubbornly low in recent years, with only about 15% of plastic produced around the world being recycling. Could new technologies be the answer?
This webinar, presented by IDTechEx Technology Analyst Dr Michael Dent, introduces some of the emerging technologies that could help reignite plastic recycling across the world, considering the economics of each technology. The webinar is based on the recent IDTechEx report, "Polymer Recycling Technologies 2020-2030".
The webinar includes:
  • An overview of the state of plastic recycling;
  • An introduction to the emerging technologies across the world of plastic recycling;
  • A discussion of the economics of plastic recycling technologies in view of global oil prices.
