(WHAS11)- Scientists at a British university have found a way to recycle 100 percent of plastic materials.
  
Right now only certain kinds of plastics can be broken down and reused, which leaves a lot of waste.
  
Using a new technique with high heat in a vacuum, researchers are able to break all plastics down into their basic elements for reuse.
 
The new method could mean a big drop in pollution and overall bulk waste.
