As the largest plastic manufacture economy entity, China is surely the largest country in waste plastic producer. So it is quite necessary to work out the long term strategy for how to deal with waste plastic.
Considering of environmental protection, nowadays people are more willingly to find other ways instead of just burying or burning them. The waste plastic recycling is a new popular way to reuse the waste and turn waste to value. Plastic recycling is a way in which waste plastic is compacted first to reduce its inflated volume. Them the compressed plastic will be processed into pellets which can put into manufacture again. In this way, we make the waste plastic into reusable pellets. It is environmentally friendly and profitable.
