Quality assessment of recycled plastics
2008 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The project develops polymer characterization models, which are to be used in determination of polymeric properties ofrecycled plastics. In Europe, new standards are developed within the CEN bodies and a new standard on plastic recycling willbe released. The project develops knowledge about the properties that are important for quality assessments and presentlythree items are under investigation: a) degree of degradation, b) degree of blending and c) presence of low molecular weightcompounds. The analytical methods investigated are DSC, TGA, FTIR and chromatography. In a later step, validation of themethods will be made.
