Track 11: Industrial and Chemical Waste Recycling
Industrial Waste Management may expand as a result of the rising amount of hazardous waste coming from sectors including healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and manufacturing. Systems for managing industrial waste recycling can safely dispose of solid, liquid, plastic, metal, and nuclear wastes as well as correctly distinguish between organic and inorganic waste. Specialized care is offered according to various sorts of industries. The most promising method for reclaiming value from discarded plastics is chemical recycling and upcycling, including the conversion of plastics into their raw monomers, liquid fuels, or chemical feedstock to create value-added goods. In contrast to conventional recycling techniques, these approaches frequently need strict conditions and are prohibitively expensive. In light of this, this Mini-review provides an overview of current developments and trends in the chemical recycling and upcycling of waste plastics.
