Values regain - Recycling

Solvent-based processes offer new approaches for an economically interesting recycling of thermoplastic composites . This can be applied for both production waste and end- of-life products . In two case studies describes how through the recovery of , inter alia, can minimize polyamide and ABS or ABS blend raw material losses . This relieves the same time the environment .

Shredder-Residues as Source for High-Quality Plastics (Poly-Ressource)

During the last decades steel, glass, wood and other materials have been replaced by plastics with increasing tendency and the demand for high-quality plastics for technical products is still increasing. However fossil raw-materials, especially crude oil, for the production of plastics are limited. Therefore actual research work focusses on opportunities to recover plastics from waste streams for the use in high-value applications.

Sevenfold Efficiency

PLASTIC WASTE – Using the CreaSolv® Process plastic shredder residues will be recycled to polymers of high quality. A project is targeting integrated industrial realization in 2012.

Using the CreaSolv® Process the Fraunhofer lnstitute for Process Engineering and Packaging in Freising, Germany has developed an innovative plastic recycling process that produces high-quality recycled polymer from plastic waste that previously could not be re-used. This includes plastics from old electrical equipment, old cars and the production of composite materials.
