Description

Progress in Rubber, Plastics and Recycling Technology bridges the gap between research and development and the practical and commercial applications of polymers in a wide range of uses.

Current developments and likely future trends are reviewed across key areas of the polymer industry, together with existing and potential opportunities for the innovative use of plastic and rubber products. The challenges facing the industry, such as environmental and legislative pressures, stricter quality requirements and the need for recycling, are included.

Progress in Rubber, Plastics and Recycling Technology focuses on:

  • The end-use sector and applications
  • Additives and their effects on the environment
  • Properties and performance of specific materials
  • Overviews of the current position of emerging materials and processes

Areas also covered are all aspects of waste management in the use of polymers and polymer related products, including:

  • Coding and labelling
  • Collection and separation
  • Co-mingled products
  • De-polymerisation technology
  • Energy recovery methods
  • Life cycle analysis
  • Measurement of impurities
  • Product design
  • Reprocessing technology
