Plastic recycling is a mechanical and/or chemical process of recovering plastic waste or scrap discarded during the production of plastic products (pre-consumer plastic waste) or after the use of these products by consumers (post-consumer plastic waste). Plastic recycling is not only economical but also helps decrease carbon emission. It is also environment friendly than production of virgin polymers, moreover, recycling plastics can save up to 85% of energy required to manufacture same amount of virgin plastics
Rising awareness regarding environmental protection, bans on dumping recyclable plastic waste in landfills, and modification in product designs to make the plastic products more recyclable are fueling the plastic recycling market in developed countries, especially in Europe. Thus Europe has some of the highest plastic recycling rates in the world. On the contrary, recyclers in Asia Pacific recycle plastic for financial support and as a source of income. The region has high number of informal recyclers which stay anonymous and default taxes. North America is a leading consumer of plastics in the world, however, the recycling rates of then region are significantly low due to high dependence on Asia for plastic waste disposal. Europe has the highest rate of PET recycling, PET recycling accounts for more than 38% of the plastic recycling market in Europe.
