Only 15% of all plastic has been recycled worldwide in 2020.
The plastic that is being recycled leads to low quality applications.
Even worse, plastic is being burned, instead of used for new products.
We are developing a plastic scanning machine that revolutionizes currently unusable plastic recycling by scaling up sample sizes with a factor 100.000.
The novel technology provides a reliable material fingerprint of the recycled plastics
Our technique is based on the well-known Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) technique
Because of the much bigger sample size the analysis is representative for much bigger quantities of plastic.
