Scientists discover recycling process for polycarbonates

IBM Research, Yorktown Heights, New York, has announced that researchers from the Almaden lab in San Jose, California, have discovered a new, one-step chemical process that converts recycled polycarbonates into plastics that are safe for use in water purification, fiber optics and medical equipment. Every year, IBM Research says the world generates more than 2.7 million tons of a specific plastic, known as polycarbonates, to create common household items, such as CDs, baby bottles, eyeglass lenses, smartphones and kitchen utensils.
