Understanding different types of plastics is crucial when making decisions on items for your business. Because now I will introduce you a high profit project about waste plastic recycling. But at first, I should tell you 4 kinds of plastics and their common applications.

  1. Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE)
Common Application: single use water bottle containers, cooking oil bottles, peanut butter jars.
PET is semi-rigid and very lightweight. It's best suited for single-use containers as it can break down when exposed to light and heat, causing it to leach. PET can also be recycled into fabric, similar in strength and appearance to virgin nylon.

  1.  Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Common Application: plastic pipes, outdoor furniture, shrink wrap, water bottles, liquid detergent containers.
Most PVC vinyl products contain phthalates, which mimic human hormones and also affect various life forms including fish and invertebrates adversely. For this reason, we do not recommend products made from PVC for food storage.

  1. Polypropylene (PP)
Common Application: bottle caps, food containers, drinking straws.
Polypropylene is commonly used for injection molding. It's resistance to high heat generally makes it microwave and dishwasher safe, as well as a good option for food and beverage storage.

  1. Polystyrene (PS)
Common Application: cups, plastic tableware, meat trays
Polystyrene foam is a major component of plastic debris in the ocean, where it becomes toxic to marine life. Currently, the majority of polystyrene products are not recycled. This material should be avoided.
Most plastic can be recycled to make fuel oil by waste plastic pyrolysis plant. Pyrolysis is a process in which waste plastics can be heated to high temperature(about 180℃), then oil gas will come out, the oil gas through cooling system, that is condensers and top cooling pipe, was cooled down, and then oil gas turn to liquid oil, that is fuel oil. It can be used to engine, generator, and so on. Our waste plastic pyrolysis plant not only can solve the waste management problem, but also solve the plastic pollution problem. It is energy- saving, environmental friendly, long work service, is the high profit project for you.
Following is the oil yield of some kinds of plastic

PE 95%
PP 90%
PS 90%
ABS 40%
Plastic cable  80%
Plastic bag 50%
Submarine cable  75%
Rubber cable  35%
Sole  30%
PVC Not suitable 
PET Not suitable
