Increasing Value of Recycled Plastics Through Compounding & Reactive Extrusion

9 Days left to register

Tuesday Jun 25, 2019

Boost the adoption of recycled plastics (PET, PE…) in demanding applications (reserved for virgin plastics until recently) by solving quality issues and meet the market demands by enhancing properties with advanced techniques.

Kenneth Russell will help you address key issues (changes in IV, off color, inconsistent feed…) by going beyond standard mechanical recycling methods. He will discuss new solutions using compounding and reactive processing concepts to increase the value of your recycled product streams.

Why should you attend?

Sustainability & handling of plastic waste is a critical topic globally. With towns, states and countries banning plastics, improving the capability, quality and quantity of recycled plastics has become inevitable to the life of plastics industry. However, consistent issues like quality (changes in IV, off color…), inconsistent feed, difficulties with moisture control act as roadblocks in improving the capability of recycled plastics.

Cater to the growing need to increase the value of your recycled resins consistently and reliably by joining this course. You will:

  • Improve the properties of recycled PET & PE by learning about compounding & reactive extrusion technology

  • Get a review of standard/new processing methods, that will help you develop similar techniques, to increase the value of their recycled product streams

  • Address complex, consistent processing & quality issues like changes in IV, off color, difficulties with moisture control, inconsistent feed with ease

Who should attend?

R&D Chemists, Compounders, Engineers and Technicians who work in the field of plastics recycling and want to increase the value of their recycled plastics through reactive extrusion processing and compounding
