Polimery 1996, No 11-12, 613

DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.1996.613


New opinions on the alleged environmental harmfulness of PVC have been presented. The existing PVC recycling processes and the associated ecological material balances have been underlying the hitherto unfavorable opinions. The current status and PVC recycling management in Germany have been described in detail. New PVC recycling prospects are associated with the „Deutsche PVC-Recycling GmbH" just set up and with the „PVCThermoSplitting" process (burning of PVC in a rotary oven and recovery of HCl).
