Seeking Chemical Technologies to Improving the Sorting, Separation and Recycling of Composite and Multi-layer Materials
Deadline : 2019-12-31
Composite or multi-layer materials are increasingly used in different applications. Products and materials are getting more and more complex, which affects the ability to retain the value of materials in successive uses. While the combination of different materials may provide unique and desirable properties to products, it also brings challenges for the sorting, separation, recycling or composting of the materials that constitute the products, whether in a compound form or separately. It also complicates their re-introduction into manufacturing processes. A better understanding of these challenges should inform the design of composites and multi-layer materials. The company is seeking chemical technology-providers include universities, startups and SMEs with technologies relating to the sorting, separation and recycling of composite and multi-layer materials. Their technologies and materials should be preferable be at TRL 4 and above.
