TGA-FT-IR – Ihre Lösung zur Identifizierung einer Kunststoffmischung und ihrer Zusammensetzung

Polymermischungen bieten während ihrer Lebensdauer erhebliche Vorteile. Sie erschweren jedoch das Recycling am Ende ihres Lebenszyklus. Eines der grundlegendsten Probleme ist die Identifizierung des Materials als Blend sowie seine Zusammensetzung, um sicherzustellen, dass es richtig sortiert wird und wenn möglich wiederverwendet werden kann. Lesen Sie, wie TGA und FT-IR bei der Identifizierung helfen können!

Recycling Carpets Turns into a Raw Material Opportunity

Billions of pounds of carpets are generated annually worldwide. A large percentage of which ends up in landfills is problematic because nylon is non-biodegradable.

Limitations in landfill capacity and the environmental impact of disposing of carpet waste in this manner have made recovering nylon from carpet waste an increasingly important enterprise.
