Outlook on postconsumer plastics recycling
Our Principal Scientist, Kristoffer Stokes, recently coauthored a review article on plastics recycling entitled, "Why is Recycling of Postconsumer Plastics so Challenging?".
This work was done in collaboration with Prof. Bryan Vogt of Penn State and Prof. Sanat Kumar of Columbia. The article explores current challenges in recycling postconsumer plastic waste from a technical, economic, and regulatory perspective and provides suggestions on how to accelerate the development and adoption of new technologies.
