The plastic waste crisis is one of the great global challenges facing modern society. In this talk, we discuss a new technology designed to recycle mixed plastic waste, converting it into new, virgin-quality plastic feedstocks, clean, low-sulphur fuels, and other useful products. We also introduce Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT), a technique which allows the interior dynamics of large, optically-opaque systems such as these to be imaged with high spatial and temporal resolution, and explore how this technique – combined with advanced numerical modelling techniques – is being used to help optimise this nascent recycling method, and thus bring a promising concept toward industrial reality.
