Real-time Evaluation and Classification of Plastics

Project description

AI for quality analysis in plastics recycling

Plastics recycling is an important target of the EU environmental policy. Advanced technology is gaining more and more space in the recycling chain. Artificial intelligence offers the base for a quality analysis machine – the Virtual Chemist. The EU-funded RECycle Plastics project aims to develop the precision of quality analysis via new advanced AI structures that use real-time data. The project intends to make this technology faster and more effective, allowing high accuracy classification algorithms. Their goal is the amelioration of recycling rates and the production of high-quality recycled materials for advanced application use.

Objective

The Virtual Chemist is a quality analysis machine used within the plastic recycling chain, based on artificial intelligence. This project aims to increase the accuracy of this analysis through the implementation of new, state-of-the-art AI architectures and by using real-time data for further optimization.
This proposal calls for a help for a new research associative to help drive this innovation faster and more efficient, thus enabling
high accuracy classification algorithms. These algorithms would enable the plastic recycling industry to increase recycling rates while creating a quality recycled material that can be used in new high-grade applications.
