PolyCE at the International Electronics Recycling Congress (IERC) in Salzburg

  • Sorting of pure plastic fractions before shredding, wherever economically feasible
  • Improve communication between pre-processors and recyclers
  • Implementation of a standard flake size (10–20 mm) of the plastic fraction
  • Keep the production of fines low by reducing the number of shredding steps and the choice of an adequate shredding technology
  • Sort out brominated fractions before transport to the plastics recycler
  • Remove contaminants, such as glass and wood, prior to the shredding
  • If feasible, separation of the fine fraction by suitable sorting technologies
