Characterization of plastic containing waste fractions
Fraunhofer IVV is capable of determining the contents of thermoplastics in a material. This includes explicitly inhomogeneous waste streams e.g. from the automotive industry, packaging wastes, construction & demolition or others. The composition analysis is mainly performed by selective extraction of each thermoplastic polymer. In addition, the quality of the polymer fractions can be analysed in terms of purity, molecular weight, thermal properties, metal content and other properties.
