  • Separating Plastics by Density

    Jun 13, 2014 ... Introduction: When plastics are recycled it is particularly important that they are separated by type. The numbers on recyclable plastics help this process along, but on a large scale it is inefficient to hand sort the items. Instead materials are separated by density. We will mimic this process using liquids and ...
