Technological support for the transformation of thermoplastic recycled material

Using recycled materials represents a significant challenge due to the greater variability of these materials, especially when from a post-consumer source. This fact, together with stringent quality requirements in some sectors, such as the automotive industry, brings a need to adapt the transformation processes. The following technological needs have therefore been identified:

  • Develop recycled materials for the automotive industry through compounding based on post-industrial and post-consumer waste.

  • Develop a guide for processing recycled materials, from quality control through to the processing parameters, including the means required to ensure a stable process and identify any differences in the transformed raw material.

  • Adapt artificial intelligence tools to treat material variability.

Scope of work: Recovery of plastic waste for the automotive sector
