In 2000, a transformative climate-driven "megadrought" swept over the Colorado River watershed. By the early 2020s, levels on the river’s two largest reservoirs were hitting record lows and threatening the water supply for forty million people. Outside the West, water stocks are stressed even in states with bountiful rainfall such as Florida. From coast to coast, conventional measures to sustain the most fundamental natural resource on earth-drinking water-are coming up short. Recycled water could help close that gap.

This book presents an authoritative account of the potential of recycled polymer blends and composites such as recycled rubber, Polypropylene, Poly(Vinylidene Fluoride) (PVDF), polyhydroxybutyrate-3-valerate (PHBV), Polyethylene, and similar compounds, in polymer recycling industries. It highlights the latest research on fundamentals of recycled polymer blends and composites such as physical, chemical, mechanical and thermal properties and morphological studies. The book also provides a comprehensive state of the art review of recycling of polymer blends and composites for sustainability. Polymeric substances recycled from excess sludge in wastewater treatment plants, reinsertion of Poly(Vinylidene Fluoride) (PVDF), polyolefin and Polypropylene post-Industrial waste by primary recycling, as well as the recent development of biomass and COVID-19 plastic waste derived char filled natural starch biocomposite briquettes are also covered.
