What do recycling symbols on plastics mean?

Polyethylene terephthalate is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in synthetic fibres; beverage, food and other liquid containers; thermoforming applications; and engineering resins often in combination with glass fiber.

High-density polyethylene or polyethylene high-density is a cost effective answer for a number of piping problems in Metropolitan, Municipal, Industrial, Underwater, Mining, Landfill Gas extraction, Cable duct and agricultural applications.

Polyvinyl chloride is the third most widely used thermoplastic polymer after polyethylene and polypropylene. Around the world, over 50% of PVC manufactured is used in construction. As a building material, PVC is cheap, durable, and easy to assemble.

Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic made from petroleum.PE-LD is used for the production of plastic food wrap, garbage bags, squeeze bottles and more..

Polypropylene or polypropene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer, made by the chemical industry and used in a wide variety of applications, including packaging, textiles, stationery, plastic parts and reusable containers of various types and motive components.

Solid polystyrene is used, for example, in disposable cutlery, plastic models, CD and DVD cases, and smoke detector housings. Products made from foamed polystyrene are nearly ubiquitous, ie, packing materials, insulation, and foam drink cups.

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a common thermoplastic used to make light, rigid, molded products such as piping, musical instruments, golf club heads, automotive body parts, wheel covers, enclosures, protective head gear, furniture etc


Paper recycling: The deinking process.

Deinking is the industrial process of removing printing ink from paperfibers of recycled paper to make deinked pulp. The key in the deinking process is the ability to detach ink from the fibres.
