Many organizations are pursuing the recycling or upcycling of used plastics to recover value from the components. In one project AVN assisted in demonstrating methods to purify a liquid product obtained from decomposition of a mixed plastics feed. Laboratory studies began with batch reactions, which helped identify methods having promise for further study. Then continuous operations were developed to investigate the potential for larger-scale processing. The results have been used by the customer to plan for further development of the process.
