RE: Fwd: Re: [greenyes] From Oil to Plastics




Another suggestion:

wayne's site looks very interesting, but if you want something less thorough, try http://www.sdplastics.com/plastics.html

Rod,

You might try these two websites combined. The first one is a very understandable website about oil refining and gets you to the point of producing natural gas which is a feedstock for plastics. The second one is about polymerization, is a little more academic but still a good website showing how you chain the molecules together to form plastic. I used the second one to educate myself on the subject of plastics a few years ago.

I hope they help.

Wayne

For months now I have been looking for a fairly detailed layman's explanation of how oil and gas become plastics.
Can anyone make a recommendation

Things seem a bit quiet on the list lately.
Hope all are in good spirits

Thanks
Rod
