Polymers are materials worth recycling rather than incinerate. This calls for higher efficiency in recycling. To take a stepin this direction a study is made on how much of the polymer fraction of an electric product that is allocated to thehousing of the product.The study showed that a presorting of products according to polymer content of the shell and afterwards a fragmentingprocess where polymers and metals are separated would give a polymer fraction dominated by the housing polymer.
