  • I think, I might be on to something here...

    In China, recycled plastic of all types is re-melted ,by a furnise, back in a raw material and sold to other places as "pre-used" plastic. Much of the people who work there complain that the furnice exspells air that isn't friendly to man-kind. And I think I have the solution:
    Gather all the plastic and place in a tub of water so hot the plastic melts, than add a tube inside the tub that the plastic runs through. The tube leads from a machine that grinds up the plastic into fine grains(or whatever)than forces it through the tube that is submerged in the water, and finally the tube come out of the other end of the tub and into a tub of much cooler water and after a certain amout of plastic has come out of the tube, it will be cut off and allowed to cool for about 45 to 50 seconds. Than the plastic is taken out of the water, cut to a certain length and a certain height, than packaged and shipped, and any excess plastic that came off when it was be cut to size, simpley goes back into the grinder and does thw whole process over again.

    Yeah, I'm REALLY bored...

      Well the question is, does plastic melt at 99 celsius water...because you know what happens when water gets hotter than that.

        If it helps, ABS plastic melts at 232 degrees celsius (450 degrees fahrenheit).

        I know this as I am a LEGO freak.

        Dunno about other plastic types though.

          Umm, if my transposing are as they used to be last year, 99 C is around... a hell of a lot hotter than my thermostat. The water isn't distiled because it gets really unstable after it reaches the boiling point and any thing that touches it turns the water into a bomb.

                    I have a hunch your idea may be flawed, then.

                        It boils. You no longer have water, you have steam.

                          And steam heats up the plastic which burns people so don't touch it. I had to experience it the hard way.

                            Not that original . . .

                            There are several US companies making various products out of unsorted recycled plastics at the moment. If you go to any of the big-box home stores you can by plastic decking "lumber" and never have to restain your deck again.
