Quality and Resin Type of Used Agricultural Plastics
Levitan, Lois C.
Agricultural plastics products (e.g., bale wrap, twine, irrigation pipe, drip tape, nursery pots, maple tubing, pesticide containers, feed bags, etc.) are arrayed on the X-axis according to the primary plastic resin used in their construction and on the Y-axis by their typical level of contamination (by soil, vegetative debris, chemical residues, moisture, and/or grit).
