I am a PhD student and a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Sheffield. My research title is: ‘Optimizing the process of chemical depolymerization of polymers via glycolysis’.
This research examines Chemical recycling as a sustainable alternative for the recycling of plastic. Chemical recycling reduces plastics to their basic building block (monomer). This makes plastics infinitely recyclable into high-quality virgin polymers, thus creating a sustainable circular economy.
