End-of-Life: Recovery Options PDF Print E-mail
Common treatment options for plastic waste are thermal recovery, mechanical recycling and landfill. Bioplastics offer in principle all the recovery options in place for conventional plastics - plus the additional option of organic recycling. However it must be kept in mind that bioplastic applications cover many different products with widely varying specific compositions and product design. The choice of the best, i.e. the most ecological and economically efficient recovery route for bioplastics is dependent on many factors such as the character of the product, market volume, existing infrastructure for collection and recovery, legislation, and last but not least, costs. These factors can differ greatly from region to region and from one application to another. Municipalities and/or private recycling companies, aiming at the most efficient use of the collected waste as a resource, will usually provide a mix of recovery options.
