Interesting article illuminating the work and success of a scientist passionately engaged in molecular chemistry and physics that has resulted in a Nobel Prize as well as what seems to a life-long opportunity for enjoyment.

One key point that the comment above misses is that brand owner commitments to use more recycled material, a point reinforced last week at the Plastics Recycling Conference, along with regulatory requirements and increased consumer demand, all point to continued growth in the demand markets for utilization of recycled plastic.

Since then, commodities have tumbled, losing more than half their value, and what was previously recycled is now being landfilled. I bet the data will show 2015/2016 as a ten-year low for plastic recycling rates.
