Polyethylene is a thermoplastic homopolymer used in a vast array of applications due to its variable crystalline structure. With approximately 10 million tonnes produced each year, PE is one of the most used polymers in the world today. Polyethylene is produced in various forms depending on its’ intended use; including, but not limited to: LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE and UHMW.
Recycling polyethylene can not only be extremely lucrative if done correctly, but is also one of the most simple and energy-efficient to reprocess. Despite this, there is still huge opportunity for the recycling industry to gain financially, as vast quantities are still landfilled each year. To see how Rotajet machines recycle polyethylene, take a look at the overview of the process shown below.
