ASSESSMENT OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS EMISSIONS FROM RECYCLED LOW-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE STREAMS

Abstract

The recycling of plastics is currently one of the most significant industrial challenges. Due to the enormous amounts of plastic wastes generated by various industry branches, it is essential to look for the potential methods of their utilization. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that recycled plastics are not pure materials, and they still may show an unfavorable environmental impact. They may contain different contaminants accumulated during processing processes, as well as their use. Moreover, post-consumer plastics may be partially degraded due to the actions of stress, temperature, or environmental conditions. Therefore, it is imperative to investigate the actual environmental impact and eco-friendliness of recycled plastics. In the presented paper, we analyzed the volatile organic compounds emissions from recycled low-density polyethylene streams. Results indicated that the application of recycled plastics should not be indisputably considered the environmentally-friendly solution.
