The problem of solid waste generation is a threatening problem that is continuously increasing worldwide, and the ability to recycle wastes instead of being dumped in landfills is considered of high necessity. Among the contents of these wastes are waste products made out of aluminum and plastic layers or those in the form of metallized plastics that are widely used in the pharmaceutical and food industries for the purpose of packaging. The recyclability of these products is considered a challenging task. In this study, the ability to chemically separate the aluminum material from the plastic layer(s) were investigated. Four different experiments were carried out using alternative chemicals; these chemicals were: hydrochloric acid; sulphuric acid; sodium hydroxide; and toluene or xylene. In the cases where hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid, or sodium hydroxide were used, the chemical reacted with the aluminum content leaving the plastic content suspended in the resulting aqueous solution. In the cases where toluene or xylene was used, the plastic content melted and separated from the aluminum content. Finally, methods to benefit from the resulting products out of the chemical processes were investigated.
