Closed loop recycling & Opened loop recycling

Plastic recycling is divided into closed-loop recycle and opened loop recycle. In open-loop recycle (also known as secondary recycle or downgraded recycling), the quality of recycled plastic is reduced each time, so the material will not be recycled indefinitely and eventually become waste. In closed-loop( or primary) recycling, used plastics are endlessly recycled into new items of the same quality and kind. So far, the only industrial success is PET bottle recycling.
