Yes, PVC is recyclable and is ideal for reprocessing. PVC compounds are 100% recyclable physically, chemically or energetically. After mechanical separation, grinding, washing and treatment to eliminate impurities, it is reprocessed using various techniques (granulated or powder) and reused in the production.
There are two principal ways of recycling PVC:
Mechanical recycling: PVC waste is ground into small pieces that can be easily processed into new PVC compounds ready to be melted and formed into new products.
Feedstock recycling: PVC waste is broken right back down into its chemical molecules, which can be used again to make PVC or other materials.
