Plastic and Packaging Wastes

Plastic and Packaging Wastes


Currently, not only End-of-life Tires (ELT) but also End-of-life Vehicles (ELV) are scrapped regularly. By means of today’s technology each passing year, large amounts of petroleum-based products used for vehicles increases. As technology advances more and more plastics are being used in vehicle production, which means more and more plastics are being recovered when the vehicle is scrapped. Contaminated plastic parts are impossible to be sorted and recycled, because of PVC and other contaminants. Because sorting is extremely difficult they are sent to incinerators or landfill. Unfortunately, these processes are considered to be quite harmful the environment, but because recycling is so difficult they are even applied in the most developed countries.

The biggest advantage of TCP, is that separation is not needed for plastic waste and it is possible to include all plastic wastes, including PVC.

This allows for better recycling, and because TCP is a non-combustion process there isn’t any harmful gas emitted to the atmosphere.
