A new recycling plant under construction in England features technologies that can break down any kind of plastic polymer into its constituent elements for recycling.
Sir David Attenborough has backed the new plant that uses superheated steam to obliterate the chemical bonds holding the monomers together appeared in a video alongside other naturalists and the owners of the plant.
