Transformative Route to Chemically Recyclable Plastics

News

As the planet’s burden of rubber and plastic rises unabated, scientists look to the promise of closed-loop recycling to reduce trash. Researchers have discovered a potentially game-changing molecule, from a material used to make common products like tires and shoe soles, with vast implications for fulfilling that promise through depolymerization.
