PET FOAM CORE BOARDS FROM RECYCLED PET
The impact of plastic on our ecosystem is undisputed. Every second more than 16,000 plastic bottles are sold worldwide. Less than 50% of these bottles are collected for recycling, and only 7% go to make new PET bottles. The majority of plastic bottles ends up in a landfill or our environment, where plastic takes hundreds of years to decompose.
Researchers show how synthetic rubber raw material can be degraded.
Enzymes are capable of degrading synthetic polyisoprene. The specific conditions for that have now been created and exploited by researchers at Martin Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry (IPB). Polyisoprene is the principal component of natural rubber and of many types of rubber also used in car tires, for example. Up until now, it has only been possible to degrade polyisoprene, with a composition similar to naturally occurring rubber. The present research could provide important insights toward a circular economy.
