Evolution of Biodegradable Plastics had delivered down using non-biodegradable plastics, however nevertheless there’s no right answer furnished for the poisonous plastics that we have been using these much of days. The main motive of doing this research is to get rid of the dumping of single use PET bottles. Non-biodegradable plastics are deserted with none reuse, making it as a landfill. The use of Pulverization technique for processing the waste plastics gets rid of the opportunity of pollutants resulting from the heating of plastic. Waste plastics are dropped into the pulverizing machine that converts the plastic bottles into granules or powders. Then those powders are combined with reinforcement material i.e., Agave Americana Fiber together with epoxy resin and hardener. The combination will then be poured right into a space out of which the desired product with required measurement may be obtained. Various samples according to ASTM requirements are pepared and their mechanical properties (tensile, impact, flexural and hardness), and microstructural research can be carried out.
