Upcycling polyethylene plastic waste into lubricant oils

Green Car Congress

Researchers in the US have developed a catalytic upcycling process using platinum nanoparticles supported on perovskites to convert single-use polyethylene (PE) (such as grocery bags) into value-added high-quality liquid products (such as motor oils and waxes). These liquids could be used as motor oil, lubricants or waxes, or further processed to make ingredients for detergents and cosmetics. Catalysts Lubricating Oils Plastics Recycling
