Should I become an engineer or a scientist?

Which should I become if I want to find ways to recycle non-biodegradable materials on an industrial scale? An engineer OR a scientist? Which one performs this jobs? What about if I want to work in finding and developing new forms of energy? Thanks in advance! :) I'm trying to decide on whether to get an Engineering degree OR some sort of science degree.

Sounds like you should go into chemical engineering, which is very scientific.

Ignore the chemical engineering comment, they study processes more then anything (i.e refining). I would suggest looking into a chemistry degree, but as it is research you will most likely require grad school.
