vina - Recycled Plastic Raw Materials

Recycling of plastic materials is an important topic, driven by commercial and environmental influences. Pressures on landfill capacity and other concerns such as legislation or regulations have caused the plastics industry to pay much greater attention to the recycling of heterogeneous plastic waste. Separation and cleaning techniques have been developed along with the means of reusing recycled material. The latter sometimes give variable compositions and poorer properties, but additives can be used to improve the properties of recycled polymers. Blending of recycled polymers may also help to improve the properties of the materials.  Mounting environmental and legislative pressures for reducing plastics waste are among the factors that have hugely increased demand for recycled as well as biodegradable plastics in the recent past.
