I am an Industrial Design Student developing a product which will heat and compress post consumer plastic containers. This is to reduce the volume so that collection is more economical.
What I want to know is will crystillization of the plastic affect the recycling process?
If it does, how can I still heat the plastic to reduce its size without getting a crystillization?
What are the 'softening' temperatures for
6. PS ??
If anyone has any further information about my proposed idea (ie, if it has been done before), I would greatly appreciate contacts.
