Circular Economy of Plastics: NETZSCH Tools to Identify and Analyze Unknown Compositions


Today’s most important waste streams of plastics to become a circular economy are the pre-consumer and post-consumer waste. While the first is more or less production waste, the latter comes from the municipal waste stream with far more diversity and uncertainty regarding the material itself, its condition and therefore, reusability.

One current hurdle to increase recycling rates is the identification and quantification of unknown compositions found in recycled materials. One such identification tool is the Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), which allows to identify materials based on their melting characteristics. At the same time, it allows the quantification of the components in comparison to a reference.

In this webinar, the DSC analysis as well as useful tools targeted at the plastics recycling industry will be presented for some common plastics mixtures.
