Wide spread application and non-biodegradability of the poly(ethylene terephthalate) generate a huge amount of waste and disposal, posing serious environmental problems. Disposal of the PET wastes also can be thought as an economic loss of valuable chemical resources. We present various ways of feedstock recycling of PET waste to deal with environmental and economic problems. Feedstock recycling is one of promising technologies. It is based on the concept of depolymerizing the condensation polymer such as PET through solvolytic chain cleavage into low molecular products which can be purified and reused as raw materials for the production of high quality chemical products.
