Is the recycling process vegan or even vegetarian?

Might there be something that is used in the recycling process that is an animal product, or is derived from an animal product?

Yes, you're right. Eggs and Greek yogurt are essential for the recycling of certain aluminum alloys.

Not.

In the future, please present evidence to back up your claims.

A process means a sequence of actions. There is a process for refining sugar that involves the charred remains animal bones. That is an example of a process that is not vegan or even vegetarian, and a one not a lot of people (including some vegans and vegetarians) know about. What I am asking is are there ways things are recycled that are not vegan or even vegetarian.

Hi unjustifiable existence,

Why don't you research these topics, using reputable sources, and then write a short essay on the topic here?

Or, are you using this forum to do your homework for you?

Why does anyone bother asking anyone else things they are wondering about?

I suspect that the reason why no-one has answered your question is because (1) it is nitpicky and (2) there are dozens of different recycling process, with multiple steps, and so substantial research would be needed to provide a detailed answer. Different materials undergo different recycling methods, and some materials are recycled in more than one way. Paper can be recycled by re-pulping it and making new paper, or it can be shredded and used directly in padded envelopes - which subprocesses are involved? Glass can be recycled by melting it and making new glass items, or it can be crushed and added to asphalt for street repair - which subprocesses are involved? Plastics can be recycled by melting / re-using directly, or plastic can undergo depolymerization into smaller molecules and re-used from there. It's a huge topic! If you are curious, then I recommend you research it.



In any event, I doubt very much that these processes involve significant amounts of animal products.
