Single-use items make up a huge part of our plastics production today and thus also of our waste stream. On our way from a linear to a circular economy, mechanical recycling has been one of the solutions for many years. However, low prices of virgin materials in comparison to recyclates has hindered that advancement. As current legislation and public attention are pushing in this direction, we want to discuss how thermal analysis methods like Differential Scanning Calorimtry (DSC) and rheology can help identify and successfully process recyclates from mixed recycling streams.
In this webinar we will cover:
- Identification of different materials in available recyclates using the NETZSCH products DSC + Identify database search
- Crystallization behavior of a blend out of different packaging materials using DSC
- Miscibility of such blends using rotational rheometry
We would like to point out that all our webinars are recorded. The recordings are made available to the participants – as well as to the registrants – in an automated way afterwards. You are welcome to officially register for the webinar. Even if you can't attend, you will receive the recording afterwards.
