How is recycled plastic disinfected?

  1. Sep 24, 2011 #1
    I'm having a significantly harder time finding information on this than I thought I would.

    I'm trying to write a small report on the chemical processes that recycled plastics are put through, but I can't seem to find much information on the methods used to disinfect various plastic polymers.

    Any information or places that I should be looking would be very helpful.

    I have no idea; but would heat not be achieving that?
