The plastic industry has successfully developed some workable technologies for recycling of plastic waste. Recycling is a sustainable, economic and environmentally friendly solution. Mechanical recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessing the material physically into new plastic products. Major raw material for plastic commodities is LDPE. But some significant challenges still exist in mechanical recycling. Cleaning of waste plastic was one of the challenge in recycling. Cleaning of waste plastic is necessary for producing good quality product from waste plastic. This project’s goal was to develop the cleaning process for contaminants removal from waste plastic.
