“Of course, everyone is concerned about plastic waste, but the reality is, they also need to use plastic,” says Professor Maschmeyer from the University of Sydney's School of Chemistry.

“Our recycling method reconciles those two ideas.”Professor Maschmeyer created a chemical process where plastic waste can be turned into fuel, or used to make new plastic again, and again.
