From polyester edge trim to plasticizer through chemical recycling

The project investigates the possibilities of depolymerise industrial polyester waste and use the depolymerised mixture as raw material for synthesis of plasticizers. Methods for depolymerise and syntesise of plasticizers are investigated. A successful Project result can in the long term contribute to an increased use of secondary raw materials, and development of safe plasticizers.
