Chemical Recycling is not an option. It is the only option.

In our never-ending quest to be more sustainable, we are always looking for new ways to recycle and reuse materials. But what about recycling chemicals? Chemical recycling is a process by which waste chemicals are converted into new, usable chemicals. This process can be used to recycle everything from plastics to solvents to oil.

About Chemical Recycling

chemical recycling

Chemical recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new, usable products. It can be used to recycle a wide variety of materials, including plastics, glass, paper, and metal. Chemical recycling is often more effective than traditional recycling methods, such as incineration or landfilling.  Not only does chemical recycling help reduce pollution and conserve resources, but it can also be used to create new products or even improve existing products.

There are many ways to reuse and recycle different types of chemicals. Some chemicals can be reused as-is, while others need to be reprocessed or recycled into new products.

Reuse: Many chemicals can be reused without any further processing. For example, solvents can be used over and over again until they eventually break down and need to be replaced. The same is true for acids, bases, and other solutions used in chemical processes.

Recycling: Some chemicals can be recycled into new products. This is often done with metals, such as copper and aluminum. But it can also be done with other materials, like plastics and glass. In some cases, the recycling process itself produces new chemicals that can be used in other applications.

Waste reduction: One of the best ways to reduce waste is to use less of a chemical in the first place. This can be done by using less toxic chemicals, or by finding ways to use less of a chemical during a process. For example, using catalyst allows for reactions to take place at lower temperatures, which reduces energy consumption and the amount of waste heat produced.

Hazards of used chemicals 

The harms of used chemicals are many and varied. They can include acute toxicity, chronic toxicity, endocrine disruption, cancer, and other health effects. Chemicals can also bioaccumulate in the food chain, meaning that they can build up in the bodies of animals and humans over time. This can lead to long-term health effects that may not be immediately apparent.

There are a number of ways in which chemicals can enter the environment. They can be released into the air, water, or soil during their production or use. They can also be released when products containing them are disposed of improperly. Once in the environment, chemicals can spread through the air, water, or soil and contaminate other areas.

Acute toxicity is the ability of a chemical to cause harmful effects within a short period of time after exposure. These effects can range from mild (e.g., headaches) to severe (e.g., organ damage). Chronic toxicity is the ability of a chemical to cause harmful effects over an extended period of time after exposure. These effects can also range from mild (e.g., fatigue) to severe (e.g., cancer).

Endocrine disruption occurs when chemicals interfere with the body’s endocrine system, which regulates hormone production and function. This interference can lead to a variety of health problems including reproductive difficulties, developmental disorders, and cancer.  

How does MyRecycler assist?

There are a number of different ways to chemically recycle waste materials. One common method is pyrolysis, that we at MyRecycler use. Pyrolysis involves heating the waste material in an oxygen-free environment. This process breaks down the material into its component parts. The resulting products can then be used to create new products.

Another popular method of chemical recycling is gasification. Gasification involves breaking down the waste material into its component gases. These gases can then be used to power engines or generate electricity. Gasification is a particularly effective way of recycling biomass (plant-based) waste material.

Chemical recycling is an important tool in the fight against climate change. Recycling helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the need for new raw materials. Chemical recycling can also help us move towards a circular economy – one where resources are reused and recycled.
