During the past two or three years, many plastic manufacturers have (5) ___________.

A. is characteristic of a different plastic

B. developed their own compatibilisers

C. which has never been achieved despite substantail government investment in research

D. often used in wrappers and containers

E. they could be used in high-grade, high-cost applications such as car bumpers

F. it does not have sufficient rigidity

G. for example, car bumpers made from one material instead of up to seven

H. always been sceptical about recycling plastics

I. as manufacturers do not want to be seen to be using recycled plastics in their quality products
