Recycling machine has 'cracking' solution to plastic pollution

The scourge of plastic pollution is a huge problem for humanity, with the U.N. estimating that less than a tenth of all plastic ever produced has been recycled.

Now a British firm is hoping to become part of the solution.

Recycling Technologies has built a machine that transforms hard-to-recycle waste plastic into a novel raw material called Plaxx, through a process called 'thermal cracking'.
