Abstract

Recently, the Feringa Nobel Prize Scientist Joint Research Center demonstrated a green method to synthesize plastics from natural small thioctic acid (TA) monomers. This novel recycling system provides successful chemical recycling using a dual closed-loop process under mild operating conditions. Here, we discuss the critical environmental sustainability dynamics of these recycling systems and their potential to support a plastic circular economy.
