A challenge in recycling this has been that the collected plastic waste generally consists of both recyclable plastic and unrecyclable plastic with e.g., remnants of previous content food […]
Danes generate every year about 350.000-ton plastic waste – and only 60.000 ton of this is recycled into new plastic granulate. To solve this problem, Aage Vestergaard Larsen – an expert company in the recycling of plastic, and the biggest in the Northern Region have created a machine. A machine that can clean, sort and dry household plastic waste while using 70% less water than similar devices. They call it “GEORG”.
Globally, more natural resources are consumed than what is sustainable for our finite planet. According to the United Nations, the extraction and processing of natural resources are responsible for around half of all global CO2emissions and over 90 per cent of global biodiversity loss. It is evident that we have a shared challenge in decoupling growth in resource use from population and income growth. A transition to a circular economy will enable this.
In recent years, the Danish Technological Institute (DTI) has been a principal partner in several R&D projects focusing on characterisation and removal of microplastics and microrubber in wastewater treatment plant influent/effluent, industrial wastewater and stormwater, respectively.
