Plastic materials are abundant in our daily life. Many of these plastic objects have a coating/paint to improve their performance or improve the aesthetics. Unfortunately, these additional layers prevent recycling. Wouldn’t it be nice if we can remove them, allowing us to recycle the plastic material?
Nowadays, a shift toward a circular economy is inevitable, also within the plastics industry. More and more emphasis is put on recycling of plastics, both in industry and research.
Within this free webinar we would like to present you a broader picture of circularity in the EU plastics industry as well as an overview of current plastics recycling processes. Further, technologies to remove coatings/paints from plastics are presented, next to a study on the reprocessing of ABS and ABS/PC materials.
This webinar is organised within the framework of the DECOAT project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 814505.
