The new recycling facility will open its doors in the city of Duiven by mid-2018 and is being partly funded by the Dutch Waste Packaging Fund. This development is very promising, according to Cees de...
The company claims to have invented DEMETO's core technology, which enables an effective process intensification of the depolymerisation reaction (hydrolysis) of plastic - 'from bottles as much as...
A total of 96.1 million motor vehicles were produced globally last year – of which almost 78 million represented passenger cars. Growth was up 14% in China, 2.8% in Europe and 1.6% in North...
Upwards of 50 000 tons of tyres are discarded in Finland annually, according to the country’s compliance scheme Finnish Tyre Recycling – which represents 280 tyre producers and 2900...
‘India generates 1500 tonnes of plastic waste every day and we just throw it away,’ comments S K Dhawan, who oversaw the project. Around 600 plastic bags are used to create one tile,...
Against this backdrop, researchers at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) in Scotland, together with 10 European partner organisations, have been awarded almost £500 000 (Euro 570 000) by...
Recycling Technologies is currently operating the Swindon Material Recovery Facility, which relies on chemical technology to recycle plastic waste back into a valuable low sulphur hydrocarbon...
NASA says its 2018 project is the first one to combine recycling and 3D printing into one single device. The Refabricator is roughly the size of a mini refrigerator. It will process one type of...
The expansion will increase the plant's annual capacity of 5000 tonnes by an additional 2500 tonnes per year. This financial injection will allow GreenMantra to meet growing demand for its polymer...
AMI has yet to select a location for the plant, but indicates it will be situated near a manufacturing hub of electronic vehicle batteries. The US company also intends to recycle other valuable...
Pyrowave is proposing the first commercial modular technology consisting of small machines using a patented catalytic microwave depolymerisation technique to ‘deconstruct’ the plastic...
The consortium uses a cryo-mill to pulverise electronic waste - primarily the computer chips and polymers that make up printed circuit boards - into particles so small that they do not contaminate...
'Our lab tests showed that fibre-reinforced concrete reduces crack formation by more than 90% compared to regular concrete,' explains Obinna Onuaguluchi, a postdoctoral fellow in civil engineering at...
People would need 'thousands of tons' of concrete to survive on other planets like the moon or Mars because of they are frequently bombarded with lethal radiation and small meteorites that could...
The innovative hydrometallurgical approach has recovered both metals in laboratory-scale tests from standard lithium batteries with ‘reasonable efficiency’, according to Ataur Rahman of...
The new recycling flowsheet processes use crushing, grinding and other simple physical processes to recover valuable metals in an economic and environmentally safe manner, explains mineral processing...
By the end of 2019, the 100% recycled content blankets will have rescued 88 million plastic bottles from landfills– equivalent to the weight of 44 A380 aircraft, according to Emirates. All...
As the world at large increases the use of nuclear power, there is a need for improved extraction agents for nuclear waste separations and recycling technologies, so argues Steve Liddle, head of...
‘Everybody’s heard of blood diamonds - but maybe people haven’t heard of blood cobalt or tantalum or lithium,’ says project leader Eric Schelter, associate professor in the...
Carbois had previously managed to successfully depolymerise 100% amorphous PET based commercial products into its original monomers, terephthalic acid and mono ethylene glycol. This new step is a '...
AquaRefining uses an entirely reusable water-based technology to produce ingots of ultrapure lead. Through its own on-site assay, Aqua Metals has verified that the lead produced in the AquaRefining...
Thanks to a ‘unique chain of different sorting processes’, the Stena Nordic Recycling Centre can also recover the tangled debris that occurs when cars and other complex products are...
Pyrolysis process was the largest technology segment of the global recycled plastic and plastic waste to oil market, accounting for more than 50% of the global share in 2014. Meanwhile, polyethylene...
The unusual project has seen the research team dismantle the batteries and pulverise the cathodes before exposing the remaining pulp to the fungus. ‘Fungi naturally generate organic acids, and...
When heated, the food-contact-compliant melt produced by Erema’s VACUREMA technology runs directly into the XTREME production process developed by SIPA to make preforms in a single step. This...
There has been no Nordic production of viscose, the main textile fibre from timber, since the last manufacturer stopped nearly a decade ago, while the 2011 spike in cotton prices contributed to...
The new recycling method can now be applied to PET, thus enabling the regeneration of monomers while maintaining the same quality and physicochemical properties as their petroleum-based counterparts...
Dr Thomas Dorin and his co-workers have built a prototype of the recycling process at Deakin's Institute for Frontier Materials at Waurn Ponds. Said to deliver 'an enhancement of the alloys'...
It could be argued that water makes the world go round. No less than 71% of the Earth's surface is covered with water, with the oceans holding over 95% of it. Increasing demands on the purity of...
