Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene
Polystyrene | Plastic: products such as Styrofoam coffee cups, food
trays, and “clamshell” packaging, as well as some yogurt tubs, clear
carry-out containers, and plastic cutlery. Some recycling of polystyrene
is taking place, but is limited by it low weight-to-volume ration and
its value as a commodity.
Other | Plastic: polycarbonate (PC), polyamide (PA), styrene
acrylonitrile (SAN), acrylic plastics / polyacrylonitrile (PAN),
bioplastics and mixed. Technology exists to make plastic ‘lumber' form
these mixed resins but not widely available.
ABS | Plastic: monitor/TV cases, coffee makers, cell phones, most computer plastic.
