Recycling plastics in general has not been effective, in part because the process results in a deterioration of the material. These scientists claim to have discovered a method that turns plastic into a different sort of material that can be utilized in other products. It turns polyethylene, a very commonly used plastic, into a liquid that can be used as solvents and detergents. The authors claim that this can take plastics out of the waste stream.
