PLASTtics to be CLEANED by sorting and separation of plastics and subsequent recycling of polymers, bromine flame retardants and antimony trioxide

Project description

A WEEE method for plastics recycling

Millions of tonnes of mixed plastics generated by waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) treatment in Europe is exported every year to Asia to be recycled to secondary plastics comprising harmful substances or landfilled. The reason is that the hazardous additives contained in WEEE plastics block their recycling in Europe. As a result, new effective solutions for WEEE plastics recycling are indispensable. The EU-funded PLAST2bCLEANED project intends to develop a method for WEEE plastics recycling that is practical and economically feasible and also reduces environmental impact. The method focuses on recycling of the most common polymers, bromine flame retardants and antimony trioxide using innovative technologies that permit the separation of hazardous additives from plastics.
