Russian scientists have developed a method for making acid and fertilizer from polyethylene 12:48

The research group for “controlled knockdown materials” has created a method for processing polyolefins, a class of polymers that specifically includes polyethylene. This was told by the head of the Department of Polymers and Crystals Physics at Moscow State University. Lomonosov, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexei Khokhlov.

Controlled disassembly materials are programmatically broken down into safe components that can later be used for specific tasks.

“In supercritical carbon dioxide under pressure, it was possible to obtain acetic, formic, propionic acids and other substances from polyolefins by adding oxygen, which can then be used in the chemical industry,” said Khokhlov.

They also succeeded in obtaining materials based on polylactide.

“Polylactides and boric acid-based composites not only make it possible to create biodegradable packaging, but at the end of their service life these packaging can be used as a fertilizer. Boric acid is important in agriculture to increase crop yields and control insects and fungi. And recycled packaging for fertilizer will leave it in the soil for a long time,” the expert explained.
