What Can the Recycled Waste Plastic Be Turned Into?
When using plastic products, have you ever thought about how to deal with the waste plastic and what they can be turned into after being recycled?
Most of the plastics are extracted from chemical raw materials, like EPS/Expanded Polystyrene. Plastic now is gradually replacing steel, wood, paper, glass and some other conventional materials. After being used, plastics are usually discarded, producing large amounts of waste plastics and serious environmental pollution, so waste plastic recycling are attached great importance to.
After the invention of plastic, the annual production amount of plastic products is about 10 billion tons, and has passed the output of steel in terms of volume. However, such a great number of plastic products certainly results in massive waste plastics, which cannot be degraded naturally, so the best way to do that is recycling them.
According to the statistic, the production amount of the waste plastic is about 70% of the amount of new plastic products. So there are impressive amount of recyclable materials after accumulation, which would cause great damage to the environment if thrown away casually.
What can the waste plastic be turned into after being recycled? There are many options. For example, they can be used to make garbage bags, plastic buckets, plastic tables and chairs, and some of them can even be processed into plastic alloy products, the properties of which could even be better than the new plastic materials. Most plastic products, apart from those used in food and some special areas, all can be produced from the recycled waste plastic.
Some of the recycled plastic bottles are classified and cleaned in a special way and crushed to make something like tubs, broads, pipes and trays. Some of them can be compressed by machines, such as GreenMax, into much smaller sizes and transported to the next processing factories.
Waste plastic recycling is quite meaningful and can make great contributions to save natural resources and protect the environment.
