Are epoxies biodegradable or recyclable?

During the curing process, epoxy resins and hardeners form crosslinks that cannot easily be broken. Technologies are being developed to break down these types of plastics for recycling, or via other biodegradation methods, but none are readily accessible. Practically, this means that all epoxy resin systems are neither biodegradable nor recyclable.
