Abstract

This paper present results on the continuing effort to develop an advanced, new environmentally friendly process to recycle unsorted plastics, known as solid state shear pulverization. The major benefits of the solid state shear pulverization technology include continuous, pollution free operation, production of controlled particle size powder for further melt processing and robust mechanical properties of products made from commingled plastics.
