Plastics Recycling Technology 2019

Now more than ever, the pressure is on to recycle more plastics and to add value to reclaimed materials. Plastics Recycling Technology 2019 is a two-day conference from AMI that examines the latest technologies for increasing the volume of plastics being recycled. It also explores ways to improve the quality of reclaimed materials so that they can be used in higher value applications.

Leading experts discuss advances in plastics recycling systems, from sorting and cleaning through to compounding and pelletization. Speakers also examine developments in additives for boosting the properties, appearance, compatibility and processability of recycled plastics.

In addition, the conference covers the development of high-value markets for recycled plastics, including case studies of exciting new applications.

Legislation, regulations and standards play critical roles in the development of the plastics recycling sector, and Plastics Recycling Technology 2019 provides an update on relevant developments in these fields. It also looks at how recycling is closing the loop and working towards a circular economy.

The scope of the conference covers all types of polymers from polyolefins and PVC through to high-performance engineering plastics. It addresses applications ranging from the in-house reclamation of industrial scrap through to the recycling of mixed consumer waste.
