We’re a new company, aiming to rid the planet of plastic waste.
The quality-control process in plastic recycling is underwhelming, the current technique can only tell the material properties of a sample between 1-20 mg or smaller. This is far below the industrial need.
Our team is developing a radically different and innovative Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) technique, upscaling the sample representativeness to 500 grams. This increase in measurement certainty increases the price with 100 to 200 euro per ton plastic, on the average price of 350 euro per ton plastic. Based on our technique, analysis of composites or thin-film polymers is also possible. On page 2 the Bulk-DSC specifications are displayed.
The Veridis Instruments Bulk-DSC is the first DSC built with the requirements for recycling in mind. This involves minimizing the sample preparation, optimizing sample size and making the interpretation and evaluation of the results as easy and intuitive as possible. If something is missing or superfluous please feel free to contact us so we can take it into account going forward.
