Plastics Recycling Books

  • Handbook of Plastics Recycling

    Over the past 20 years recycling of plastics has increased dramatically. This is important not only from the environmental point of view (less landfill space is needed) but also from the economic point of view because recycling allows energy and materials to be reused. This book discusses some of the state-of-the-art techniques of recycling ...

  • Feedstock Recycling of Plastic Wastes

    The use of plastic materials has seen a massive increase in recent years, and generation of plastic wastes has grown proportionately. Recycling of these wastes to reduce landfill disposal is problematic due to the wide variation in properties and chemical composition among the different types of plastics. Feedstock recycling is one of the ...

  • Update on Troubleshooting in Thermoforming

    Thermoforming is one of the most common methods of processing plastics. It is extensively used by the packaging industry to produce disposable containers from blister packs for pharmaceuticals and electronics to microwavable food trays.There are many potential sources for problems in thermoforming and it is often hard to recognise the source of ...

  • Update on Troubleshooting the PVC Extrusion Process

    In recent years, PVC has penetrated markets once dominated by metals, it continues to grow in popularity with unique and dependable properties that can be used efficiently and produced economically. Because of the flexible to rigid formulations, the field of PVC is continually marked with technical innovations. Additives are also a part both ...

  • Multiscale Deformation and Fracture in Materials and Structures

    Modern Solid Mechanics considers phenomena at many levels, ranging from nano size at atomic scale through the continuum level at millimeter size to large structures at the tens of meter scale. The deformation and fracture behavior at these various scales are inextricably related to interdisciplinary methods derived from applied mathematics, ...

  • Addcon 2009

    Europe's leading conference for the plastics additives and compounding industry is now in its fifteenth year. This year saw cutting edge case studies on plastic additives, performance, processing and applications. Whether you're an additive supplier, compounder, manufacturer or end user of polymer materials, these proceedings provide an ideal ...

  • Recycling, International Trade and the Environment: An Empirical Analysis

    During the last century international trade has become indispensable for many economies. This is not only the case for trade in primary raw materials and consumer products but also for secondary (recyclable) materials. With the rapid growth of the recycling sector worldwide, trade in recyclables increased tremendously. It is striking that ...

  • Biodegradable Polymers and Plastics

    Proceedings of The 7th World Conference on Biodegradable Polymers & Plastics organized by the European Degradable Polymer Society in conjunction with the Bioenvironmental Polymer Society and the Biodegradale Plastics Society, under the auspices of ICS-UNIDO (Italy) and INSTM Consortium (Italy) and under the patronage of IUPAC - International Union ...
