Because the thermoplastic PVC pipe can simply be reground, pulverized and returned to the extrusion process to make new pipe. That means used PVC can become new source material through mechanical recycling process that grinds plastic into a powder base for new products. The whole mechanical recycling process contains many size reduction machines like PVC pipe shredders. PVC pipe recycling can help to enhance resource efficiency, save raw materials and reduce emissions and landfill.
