Can PVC Be Recycled?

Answer

Pvc can be recycled. Can be done efficiently by a heating and cooling process. Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC, as it’s commonly known, is a kind of plastic made from sodium chloride and oil or natural gas. It was first made in the 1950’s and has grown to be the second most utilised kind of plastic today. While PVC has been the bad boy of plastic in the past, the PVC industry seems very committed to develop a sustainable future for the product and in 2005 launched ‘Recovinyl’, a scheme dedicated to recovering and recycling PVC as well as working towards operating a carbon neutral industry.
