The recycling of waste plastics is one of the strategies used to tackle the issue of environmental pollution. In this study, one of the most important waste recycling problems was given to undergraduate students of chemical engineering as a project to analyze the effectiveness of project-based learning (PBL). A team of students was assigned the task of recycling PET bottles through an experimental and design approach. Students then designed a recycling plant through the project-based learning approach. The outcomes of this study clearly established that these problems which are of high societal impact, such as waste management, environmental pollution, etc., can be effectively communicated to the student community through the PBL approach, which can lead to increased motivation and enhanced critical thinking abilities.
