Recycling plastic is a major problem since it is more cost effective to produce and throw away than to recycle.  A new procedure is to “upcycle” plastic which releases polyethylene that is found in such products as bulletproof vest, food packaging and water pipes.  The new technique is not energy and labor intensive.  No solvents or water are required to convert polyethylene into alkylaromatic compounds, a main ingredient in pharmaceuticals, paints and detergents.  This new procedure avoids the use of petroleum so it is environmentally better for our planet.       Source  –  Green American
