BOTTLE Research Tasks and Capabilities

The BOTTLETM R&D portfolio is guided by techno-economic analysis and supply chain-based life cycle assessment. The consortium's integrated science framework has three research tasks—Deconstruction, Upcycling, and Redesign—bolstered by three crosscutting tasks—Analysis, Characterization, and Modeling.

BOTTLE's interdisciplinary research team pursues selective thermal, electro, photo, and biological catalysis for plastics deconstruction and upcycling and innovative approaches to design new, recyclable-by-design plastics.

Deconstruction - Plastic goods are broken down using various biological and chemical processes. Upcycling and Redesign - New plastic goods are created that recyclable by design.
