Prof. Lin was invited to give a talk in Lecture Series of the Institute for Integrated Catalysis at PNNL on Nov. 9th

Design of Catalytic Solvolysis Process for Selectively Deconstructing Waste Plastics

This lecture will discuss the catalytic solvolysis processes that convert various plastics to value-added products such as monomers or hydrocarbon fuels and lubricants. Furthermore, a sequential catalytic solvolysis process, in which an individual polymer or classes of polymers in a plastic mixture is selectively deconstructed stage-by-stage, is designed. This novel process may enable chemical upcycling of comingled plastic wastes without laborious physical sorting.
