WE ARE ON THE WAY AGAIN
Plastic is very dangerous, plastic pollutes the environment, plastic destroys our planet, and many other insults, moreover, not reflective of the truth. The plastic uprising, which produces economic solutions in all areas of life and even only at some points, runs into nature itself. Look at yourself, mankind, first arrange yourself, don’t throw plastic into nature, then sit down and talk about what is destroying the planet …
But nobody should be upset anymore, you will be able to throw as much plastic as you want, irresponsible people. You ask why? Because a new type of plastic was made. The plastic, called PBTL, is made from chemical building blocks called bicyclic thiolactones.
PBTL, a new type of plastic that can be easily decomposed into chemical building blocks and converted into high-quality products, was developed through the work of Eugene Chen of Colorado State University and his colleagues. PBTL has excellent strength, durability and stability, which means it can potentially be used for making plastic packaging, sports equipment, car parts, building materials and other products.
PBTL is able to maintain its integrity regardless of how many times it has been shredded or rebuilt. He underlines that this new plastic will be more beneficial. He states that the design of these next-generation polymers will push closed-loop life cycles towards a circular economy. The researchers discovered that PBTL can be easily recycled by heating it at 100 ° C for 24 hours in the presence of a chemical catalyst. This breaks the plastic cleanly into the original building blocks and can then be reassembled into new high quality PBTL.
The fact that PBTL can only be decomposed and reformed in this way on its own means it must be separated from other types of plastic in mixed plastic waste before it can be recycled.
More than 300 million tons of plastic are produced annually, meeting our needs in every field, making our lives easier and even saving our lives. Unfortunately, a certain part of this 300 million tons can be recycled and turned back into products. With PBTL, the recycling rate can be achieved as 100% and human beings can be given plastic freedom that they can throw into nature. Because if human beings do not protect it, plastic knows how to protect nature.
