16 Carbon dioxide and other exhaust emissions are also substantially reduced. Plastics can be broadly divided into two types; thermoplastics, which soften and eventually melt when heated and thermosets, which do not soften or melt when heated. All plastics are made from long-chain linear polymer molecules but in the case of thermoset plastics, the molecules are cross-linked, which makes the whole stucture more rigid and prevents them moving when heated. With thermoplastics, the long-chain molecules are free to move about more when heated above certain temperatures specific to the particular molecular length and chemical nature.
