Increasing the value of recycled plastics

Veridis Instruments

The innovation

The goal of Veridis Instruments is to improve the uncertainty within plastic recycling through increasing the scale of plastic samples being measured based on Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Current samples are measured on the basis of 1 to 20 milligram, which we want to increase up to 500 grams. where we focus to measure 500 grams. This will increase statistical certainty of measurements, confirm plastic types, measure degradation and the effect of additives on plastic. Thereby increasing the value of recycled plastics. We can add 100 to 200 euros per tonne recycled plastics.
