Abstract

Among the several waste management methods developed for the plastic solid waste (PSW) disposal, the route via recycling is considered as the best as it is economic and environmetal friendly. Waste plastics are nowadays being recycled and reused for energy generation, mechanical recycling, filtration membrane manufacturing, etc. Here, we briefly present the use of selected recycled polymers like polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS), polycarbonate (PC), and few other polymers as membrane filter material and establish the casting formulation parameters to achieve the final membranes with improved eco-efficiency characteristics and technical performance toward filtration applications like water purification and gas separation. The challenges involved on extending the recycling of more polymer wastes into useful filtration membrane developments and future research directions on this area are also discussed.
