Ecologically friendly and cost effective utilisation of polymer waste

Objective

The project aims to improve the technology of environmentally friendly and cost effective utilisation of polymer - polyethyleneterftalate (PET) waste. The method allows to produce composite polymer concrete from the unsorted PET waste which is further used for production of construction materials in composite concrete a melted, polymer is used as binding substance instead of cement. The method allows to produce materials with advanced properties. The main tasks of the project are - to elaborate the technology scaling the production from small amount/experimental to industrial scale and to work out polymer concrete products with optimised properties. The developed technology will be offered for application in waste processing plants. During the project a lot of RTD problems will be solved - the optimisation composition of ingredients, cleaning of emission gases, minimisation of energy consumption, automation of the manufacturing process, development of new products.
