Due to the problem that represents the accelerated
production of waste from the consumption of polyethylene
terephthalate (PET), it becomes necessary to look for alternative
solutions; chemical recycling is a suitable method for conversion
into a material with potential application in concrete additive,
such as are unsaturated polyester resins; with the above
improvements, and conservation of non-renewable raw materials
can reduce the environmental impact.
This investigation was focused on obtaining the synthesis of a
polymeric resin by the method of glycolysis, and their
characterization by Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR); the results
show that the recycled materials (PET and its processing) are
similar to reagents made from primary materials so that it is
considered feasible to use in the intended application.
