Turning polymers back into monomers- Depolymerization

The process of turning a polymer into a monomer or a combination of monomers is known as depolymerization (or depolymerisation). A rise in entropy drives this process.

Scientists have long sought strategies to break polymers down into their monomers in order to stem the tide of unrecycled plastics. Plastics that degrade naturally in the environment, as well as ways to reclaim common polymers, have been the subject of intense research. Plastic-eating microorganisms have even been discovered by chemists. However, for the time being, crude oil, the raw material used to make plastics, is still so cheap that no recycling process can compete, though this may change in the future.

Market Analysis: During the years 2022-2027, the global Depolymerization and Dispersing Machine market is expected to grow at a substantial rate. A grading chamber and a dispersion chamber are dispersed from top to bottom in the Depolymerization and Dispersing Machine. The crushing chamber is equipped with a comminution mechanism, which uses the grinding spindle as the rotating centre to crush the materials, and a grading mechanism, which uses the grading spindle as the rotary centre to discharge the crushed materials. A comminution motor drives the Depolymerization and Dispersing Machine.
