Waste polymers — an available and perspective raw material for recycling processes

Polimery 2010, No 10, 711


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2010.711

Summary

An analysis and the evaluation of balance models (static-approximate, corrected and dynamic-advanced) of polymer transformation chain "from products to post-consumer waste in the local economy has been presented. The balance for the polymer economy, though in good agreement, is characterized by a high level of uncertainty not only for Poland, but also for the EU (Tables 1—4, Fig. 2). This has been the result not only of the dynamic character of changes taking place, but also of the different fragmentation factors in the market concerning industrial and consumer applications. Moreover, there is also the issue of crucial difficulties in the mutual relationship between manufacturers, processing facilities, consumers and the waste polymer processing facilities. The general situation, with special consideration of the current availability of waste polymers for applications as raw materials in Poland and a long-term prognosis has been presented.


Keywords: waste polymers, recycling, material availability, future perspectives.
