Summary Synthetic polymer recycling necessitates collection, identification, and uniform composition, while minimizing landfill, incineration, and contamination. PET, HDPE, and PP are ubiquitous for recycling. Transient packaging is transformed to enduring products. Recycling into fibers creates textiles, laminates, and composites. Natural and synthetic polymer compositions extend texture, versatility, and performance.
