Transcript of "IARC Münich 2008 Plastics Recycling"

  1. 1. Car-Plastics meets its Re-Maker Developing a Supply Cycle for Car Plastic Chris Slijkhuis
  2. 2. Creating a Global Footprint to produce Green Plastics UK California Austria Guangzhou
  3. 3. Announcement of new MBA Polymers Plant in the UK MBA Polymers strengths European Metal Recycling strengths Non- Remove Global Shredding Remove Plastics Item collection and Decon- ferrous remaining Grade Com- sales, and ferrous remaining type aggregation tamination concen- non-target sorting pounding marketing recovery metals sorting tration materials & support one Key element MBA Polymers is Pre-processing EMR and MBA Polymers decided to create teamwork to Close the Loop for Plastics
  4. 4. Teaming up to get from Supply Chain to Supply Cycle…….. Design For the Environment Manufacturing Delivery Operations Procurement Integrated Customer C Supply Chain Use / Service Recycling Take-back Take back De-pollution Waste Minimisation
  5. 5. Pre-processing ASR is key to liberate the plastics De-Pollution Shredder Ferrous-Metals Non-FE Size reduction, Non-Ferrous-Metals liberation and Separations separation Pre-Processing ASR to further Separate Plastic/non-Plastic Mixed Plastic Rich Materials
  6. 6. View on the ASR Raw Material Feed stock Feed-stock for plastic material pre-processing pre processing
  7. 7. The key challenges with ASR plastics Low quantity and composition of t g t plastics L tit d iti f target l ti • Most ASR contains less than 30% plastics • Much of which small amounts of many specialty plastics • Upgrading is required to eliminate most non-plastics Removal of non-thermoplastic contaminants non thermoplastic • Rubber • Wood • Fabric, foam & other “fluff” • Dirt, glass & stones Large variety of many different plastics Painted/coated plastics And other surface contamination like dirt, fluids, etc. IARC
  8. 8. Composition of a typical ASR fraction Plastics and Rubber R bb Fines Fibers, foam, stones, rubber etc.
  9. 9. What is necessary to produce 1 ton of plastics? approx. 900 liter crude oil Approx. 9 tons ASR approx. 14.000 kWh approx. 950 kWh pp OR <10% of the water consumption <10% of the energy consumption gy p 2-3 kg reduction of CO2 emissions per kg of recycled plastic
  10. 10. So there is a good incentive to recycle plastics Plastics and Rubber Fines Fi Fibers, foam, , , stones, rubber etc.
  11. 11. Pre-processing principles Sourcing & Goods In Goods-In • Material Handling / Logistics • Assaying / Material Analysis Pre-Processing • Cleaning material of minerals • Glass, stones, dust • Eliminating organic fractions • such as wood, rubber, foam, textiles , , , Size reduction to a standard particle size Concentrating target plastics to some 80% by weight l b h
  12. 12. View on Pre-processed Plastic Rich Material From feed stock to pre processed plastics feed-stock pre-processed
  13. 13. View on Pre-Processing non-plastic byproducts Foam Rubber and wood concentrate Dirt and other fluff Example of metals recovered from SR Potential feed-stock for Recycling & Thermal Recovery
  14. 14. Some 80 % Target Plastics after pre-processing Other non-plastics,Fines & Dust, 0.2% 5.7% Wires/Electronics, 0 % i l Wood, 0.7% i 0.7% Foam/Fluff, 1.3% PP, 16.2% Rubber, 7.0% un-ID'd plastics, 0.8% trace plastics, 2.8% POM, 1.4% PPO-filled, 1.6% PPO-filled 1 6% PC-PBT, 1.9% ABS, 15.8% PA-filled, 1.9% PC ABS, PC-ABS, 2.0% PPO, 2.1% PVC, 2.6% ABS-FR, 3.3% PA-filled, 5.0% PP-filled, 14.0% HIPS, 6.5% PE, 6.5%
  15. 15. High Tech Separations of the Plastics Cleaning plastics • Closed circuit water treatment • A wide variety of separations • Stringent Quality & Process Control High-Tech Seperations • Obtaining PP, Obt i i PP ABS & (HI)PS flakes fl k • In several grades Resulting in pure flakes of PP, HIPS and ABS • The flakes are the raw material for quality plastics
  16. 16. View on purified filled PP Flakes
  17. 17. View on purified ABS flakes
  18. 18. View on purified HIPS Flakes
  19. 19. Blending, Extrusion and Compounding Blending the flakes • Creating homogenous products g g p Extruding into pellets • High tech compounding lines • To create purified resins (virgin like properties) Final products Quality Control • Stringent quality control as practiced in other MBA Polymers plants • MFI (Melt Flow Index) – viscosity at given temperature and shear rate • Izod (Impact Strength Measurement) • Tensile Strength

Results have been converted to ASTM units where appropriate (e.g. notched izod impact), and should be nearly identical with ASTM test results.
  21. 21. Why a High-Tech Global Footprint....... Electronics & Automotive OEM’s are Global and they demand: • Global Supply of Plastics • Virgin-like quality of the tech plastics they use • Large dependable and consistent volumes Large, • Consistent technical specifications • A global answer to their Waste Plastics • Reliable service levels for new products to become designed in in........
