    I understand that all plastic is made out of synthetic resins.
    What is the most simple way of recycling plastics? Is is through process of burning the plastic or is It a cool process? What is the outcome of recycling common plastic bottles?
    How many times can a plastic form be recycled? Can we use the recycled plastic for building hard and resilient materials? Can It be done at home?
    I'm asking these questions for better understanding of materials that can help us build the future.

    Regards!!

    usually plastics are ground up and used to form other products, ie bottles can wind up as a trash can or chair-- doubt you can accomplish much at home

    I think It's possible, that's why I'm researching plastics. I would like to know what are the exact products of recycling bottles. The Idea is too mix those products from the bottles with some filling or fibers and create some sort of ecological resins. Those resins could be used for molding, and they would replace lot's of natural materials, like wood and contribute to ecology. So the Idea is creating those resins from cheep everyday materials, that often end up as garbage. I know that It's and expensive process but I tell you, there is not a Bank that would not support such а worthwhile project. Let's contribute ?
