DePoly at Dornbirn Global Fiber Conference.
Conventional PET plastic recycling systems suffer several challenges, as they require accepted PET plasticwaste to be ideal -- uncontaminated by the presence of PVC (or other) plastics, food residue, or uncleaned containers.

This will make it easier to recycle more plastic, more efficiently while using less energy.
