Upcycling of Polyamides: Material Recycling of Fishing Nets
The EU action plan for the Circular Economy targets an increase in polymer recycling quotas. Due to the versatile nature of polymers, the damage suffered during processing and different levels of contamination, industry has developed many different technologies in order to enable reuse. BRUGGOLEN® M1417 from Brüggemann adds a new pathway for material recycling. It allows, for example, a recycler to convert certain used fish nets into polymer chip suitable for standard injection molding.
