    Innovative environmental process to minimise plastic waste

    IIT Madras finds an eco-friendly way to degrade plastics

    IIT Madras has successfully demonstrated environmental friendly way to degrade PTFE. The team has demonstrated a strategy to degrade the chemically inert and physically stable plastic fluoropolymer — polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) of which Teflon is made.

    • IIT Madras was able to degrade plastic into molecules by the continuous stirring in water containing 1,000 ppm glucose and metal ions for about 15 days at 70 degree C.
