This is a normal post PET is recyclable anyway
One of the easiest, cook it up in caustic alcohol. Always amazes me that much of the tramp juice can be sold in PET bottles, I suppose the pH is dangerously low, rather than dangerously high.

This is a normal post A very energy intensive process though.
Enzymes would really bring the cost down.

This is a normal post yeah there was that book, although i never read it so thats one for the list
But there was another book i read back in the early 80's or late 70's.
That coverd the discovery of a plastic eating bacteria that got loose in the developed world, and forced the population of Britain to seek refuge in various African countrys,where at that time plastics hadnt made there way into every corner of life.

Did a quick search on what i thought the name was. F67 but that isnt the title, just the tricks of an old mind
