Supercritical CO2 recycling presents a promising method for mitigating the environmental impact of plastic waste. By employing supercritical CO2 as a solvent, plastic waste can be efficiently treated, cleansed, and recovered, all with less or without the need for harsh chemicals or energy-intensive processes. Moreover, the recycling of supercritical CO2 can improve the quality and performance of recycled plastics, rendering them better suited for applications of higher value.
This technique holds the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, decrease landfill waste, and reduce resource consumption, thereby creating fresh prospects for the circular economy of plastics. Recycling is essential in production chain: it allows you to reuse raw materials that would otherwise be disposed of. Where possible, it is necessary to invest as much as possible to transform waste into valuable raw material.
This is the case of matrices which, to be recycled, must be purified of the compounds used during the original production, but incompatible with the production processes of the industry that intends to recycle it.
The world of plastics can benefit from this solution that we offer, even in the regulatory framework that increasingly tends towards recycling.
