Scientists from Rice University have recently discovered that through heating pyrolyzed plastic ash, it has the potential to be transformed into graphene. This process has the potential to give use to the currently unusable plastic ash, a byproduct of recycling methods.

James tour, a Rice University chemist had the following to say: “Now we can convert that ash into flash graphene that can be used to enhance the strength of other plastics and construction materials,” The potential to transform this ash into a useful and vital material such as graphene will surely cause more recycling endeavors due to higher demand.

This discovery can have great effects on the recycling and graphene industries, and should be monitored closely.
