Tarquin Crouch, Technical Services And Market Development Manager at ImerPlast UK will deliver a presentation entitled «Compatibilisation – the best way to manage mixed polyolefin waste streams” in the afternoon of Day One from 15:50.
Imerys is one of the largest European producers of recycled polyolefin compounds in Europe through its subsidiary, ImerPlast UK Ltd. Combining access to the Imerys mineral range and in-depth knowledge of the effects of minerals in polymers with their ground-breaking polyolefin compatibilization technology, has made ImerPlast UK Ltd a world-class player in the recycling field. ImerPlast purchases baled, post-consumer mixed polyolefin (MPO) waste (including PE, PP and PS), as well as some post-industrial material, which is reprocessed to exacting standards in order to displace virgin resin from engineered applications. By employing the latest technologies at all stages of the process-analysis of incoming raw materials, sorting, grinding, washing, blending and compounding-and through the use of a unique additive package, the properties of recycled plastics are improved to make the compounds behave like virgin polymers suitable for a wide range of end-use applications.
