is melting plastic fume harmful in the long term?

I started working for plastic injection factory, we mostly use PP and PS for the products, the smell is usually acceptable, but when we add dyes, the odor become very odd.
it's a New factory, no ventilation system yet, other than windows next to the machines.
I usually spend 10 hrs a day next to the machines, so, is it safe to be in such environment?

A plastic island made of the oceans' plastic trash, is this possible?

Can we upcycle the plastic in the ocean into a giant plastic island?

Idea: At this moment The Ocean Cleanup is fishing the plastic out of the ocean garbage patches and bring it back to shore.

Imagine a second ship that takes the plastic onboard, cut it into granulate, and then melt it and turn it into a giant styrofoam kind of plastic. Strong enough that it doesn't fall apart and light enough so it will float.

With an almost infinite resource of plastic trash, it should be possible to create a plastic floating structure that can function as an island.

Is this technically possible?

What plastic is best for making strong, EASILY and efficiently recyclable (many cycles) plastic storage boxes?

Hi

I'm redesigning the Post Office system for a project for my design portfolio applying to university. I am introducing a system of recycled and recyclable reusable packaging.

  • Size and makeup of traditional under-bed style storage container like below (except opaque)
  • strong
  • Easily recyclable many times into same product cheaply
  • Readiness of recycling plants to accept it unimportant - would be recycled by internal system just for this purpose

PET seems easy to recycle, and into the same kind of thing, but would it make something strong like this, or is it just for tihn things like bottles etc?

PVC seems recyclable, but some places say no, but is that just because it's common to add additives to change texture/colour? This wouldn't be a problem for me, as recycling process and manufacturing process would be developed together.

Question about the recycling process of plastics under the same recycling code

Hey everyone, I had a quick question I thought this community might be able to assist me with.

So it's about recycling: From my understanding there are thousand kinds of plastic being used in e.g. packaging of products at the supermarket, logistics, etc. All these different plastics have other processes to be broken down and recycled, cannot be broken down all together, and thus makes plastic recycling such a pain in the ass to do. For the normal customer, all plastics are the same, but for the plastic prosessors, they have to seperate all the different kinds before they can actually do something with it.

As I try to personally contribute in tackling the massive plastic pollution problem the world faces at the moment, I was curious whether one can recognize different types of plastic. Looking at the recycling codes, there are a total of 9 'main groups' of plastic. Does this mean all plastics that have been categorized under the same group, for example 02 PE-HD, can be broken down and

Is modern phenolic plastic made with asbestos like bakelite used to be?

This question came to me because I had a Revereware kettle with a phenolic handle and whistle (phenolic is the term the manufacturer used) that was purchased new in 2014. One day I forgot that I'd set the kettle to boil some water and left the apartment. When I returned, the apartment smelled horrible and the phenolic plastic whistle was ignited and dripping onto the stove. I learned my lesson and will NEVER forget to check the stove again... but recently I learned that phenolic plastic is basically modern bakelite, so I wanted to know if it's still made with asbestos fibers in it like much of the old stuff was. I aired out the smoke and the smell, but I'm scared that we might be breathing asbestos fibers that may have been released.

P.S. I googled extensively on this topic but could not find any definitive answers so I'm turning to the knowledgeable folks of this community hoping people know what I could not find by searching on my own. I also contacted the manufacturer to ask them b

Plastic Recycling Barriers

I am trying to find solutions to the following outstanding issues involved in recycling plastic (with a focus on FMCG in general and Beauty industry in particular):

1. Labeling on products can sometimes present a recycling barrier, is there a low adhesive or recyclable option?
2. Even using two different types of plastic in packaging can present a challenge for recycling companies, is there a way to streamline your packaging materials?

These are the issues I found in the Futerra report on Industry trends in Sustainability. Can you elaborate on the above two issues and explain what they mean in layman terms?

I can't believe there's a sub for plastics! Awesome!

So this is it, I'm starting to bottle my plant based milk drinks to take to market and I need to pasteurise them at 87-90 deg celsius for around 20-30 minutes. The most convenient way for me would be to bottle them up and then then stick them in boiling water - do I need to be concerned about doing this with PET plastic bottles?

Why does EVERY car reviewer complain about hard plastics in the interior of cheaper cars?

I feel like every car reviewer does this. They make a video reviewing a car, get in the interior, and they say β€œThis car’s interior could be better because there’s hard touch plastics every where blah blah” and then they ALWAYS knock the plastic to show that it’s hard touch plastic.

What do you want car manufacturers to do? You’re reviewing a bottom of the line base model Honda / Subaru / Chevy / Kia. It’s designed to be as affordable as possible to the average person. So they spend most of the money on the important stuff like the engine and transmission, then cheap out on stuff like interior materials because, well, plastic is ridiculously cheap and it helps make the car cheaper. What do you want them to do? Make the entire dashboard out of domesticated lion fur and raise the price $10,000? If you want a nicer interior, get a Mercedes or an Acura or a Bentley or some other luxury car. Or hell, on many cars if you just get a more expensive trim level, the interior will be made with

Fake information? Carbon fibre reinforced plastic is stiffer than aluminium?!

One of my suppliers told me that CF reinforced nylon or abs (30 or 60%) is stiffer than aluminium. How can this be, given aluminium's Young modulus is 69 GPa?

Dieter Bohn on Twitter: After @ZacksJerryRig showed the Z Flip scratches very easily, we got a comment from Samsung. The company stands by the claim that it's "Ultra-Thin Glass." Scratching is apparently on a plastic protective layer above the glass. twitter.com/backlon/statu…

Best plastic sheeting to use as an odor barrier?

The carpet in our new place is heavily stained and damaged from the previous owners dogs. I am sure the pet stains have penetrated the padding into the sub-floor.

Would covering a large portion of the floor in a thick plastic with heavy taping around the edges be sufficient to seal in the odors? I might spread baking soda on the floor to neutralize the "encapsulation" before taping the plastic down.

Unfortunately I am not in a position to paint the sub-floor, for which I would have used Zinsser BIN primer.

Any recommendations on what type of plastic sheeting to use?

I read that LLDPE is the most resistant to odor permeation, is this true? Any brands I should use?

Thank you!

We use bar soap to eliminate plastic waste- and by cutting the bars in half they actually last so much longer than the whole bar (due to the moisture in the shower) think of it as a 2 for 1 kind of deal πŸ€—
