The feasibility study has shown that there is a great necessity for a holistic and high- quality processing of elastomers and thermoplastics. The few alternatives available lead to a downcycling and are rarely economically efficient. Considering the amount of plastics waste produced every year within Europe and the evading amounts or resources it is absolutes necessarily to establish integrated systems. Simultaneously it is important to raise awareness for the environmental protection and resource efficiency.
The method of HLW TEC GmbH is able to revolutionize the plastics market as well as the waste market. All resources remain in the production cycle without loss of characteristics and avoiding downcycling.
Winning SME- Instrument phase 1 did not only benefit the company but also helped to raise the awareness level.
