PVC or polyvinyl chloride, sometimes also known as ‘vinyl’, is a thermoplastic material made of 57% chlorine (derived from industrial grade salt) and 43% carbon (derived predominantly from oil / gas via ethylene). There are various uses of PVC
- • Mechanical recycling: PVC waste is ground into small pieces that can be easily processed into new PVC compounds ready to be melted and formed into new products. .
- • Feedstock recycling: PVC waste is broken right back down into its chemical molecules, which can be used again to make PVC or other materials
- • It is inexpensive to make
- • Requires minimal maintenance when in use
- • PVC products are well suited for recycling when they come to the end of their life. PVC compounds are 100% recyclable physically, chemically or energetically.
