Recycling of materials is rapidly developing discipline because of environmental awareness, need to conserve materials and energy, and growing demand to increase production economy. This book combines topics discussing the state of art, analysis of processes successfully implemented in industrial practice, ideas concerning production with recycling in mind, and the new research developments offering practical solutions for recycling industry and product manufacturers. The major emphasis is given to polyolefins, polyethylene terephthalate, PVC, and rubber. Materials concerned include films, bottles, packing materials, paper, car batteries, plastics used in car interiors, tires, etc. Experiences of those involved in recycling in large companies, such as Agfa-Gevaert, Kodak, du Pont, BMW, and Metallgesellschaft, which have recycling installations in operation, are shared and generalized. Papers show that recycling is not only environmentally correct but also can be a source of income for producers of materials and final products, and also those who develop and implement service technologies. A large part of the book is concerned with processing and recycling of post-customer wastes. Several important aspects are reviewed.
