The world has growing volumes of single-use plastics that are a valuable scrap resource and yet, they continue to be landfilled. It is apparent from continuously increasing annual plastic production, low recycling rates, land use concerns, and energy recovery statistics that development and implementation of technologies to recycle or upcycle plastic waste is a need of the hour. Chemical recycling methods such as gasification are alternatives to combustion or incineration for resource recovery from mixed plastic waste.
