This paper will cover the development of solvent-based recycling technique of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) taken from post-consumer drinks containers which have the labeling number of 1. These bottle containers are further processed to be made as small pellet with sizing of less than 2 mm (length) x 2 mm (width). This sample will then be treated with selected solvent in order to dissolve it from solid PET to liquid PET. Later on, this liquefied PET will be recovered through a dissolution/re-precipitation technique to make it as a pure PET polymer. This polymer is then will be tested with various chemical analysis methods in order to identify its purity so that the success of this project can be justified.
