Secondary Granules

The polymer industry in recent years – fastest growing sector of world economy. The rapid growth of consumption, the use of polymer products, along with the weight to the positive results led to neshutochnye problems associated with disposal and recycling of plastic waste. Plastics do not degrade in the soil. Get rid of such waste is only possible when they are burned, but then the selection is huge number of harmful substances, the most dangerous – carcinogens, they also dioxins that suppress the immune system, promote the development of cancer and birth defects. In this case, dioxins and distributed in water and airspace. But there is a solution – it consists in the production of secondary granules from waste plastics industry. The use of recycled materials has played an important role in solving environmental problems, saving large amount of raw materials, which are used in the manufacture of endangered natural resources, for example, the oil reserves. An important fact is that the resulting secondary polymers, such as granulated polypropylene polyethylene, are valuable raw material in the form of low cost used in a variety of manufacturing processes (including manufacture containers, utensils, foil, semi, parts, housing, packaging, furniture, etc.), and as a consequence, very much in demand by enterprises.

Secondary granules are able to replace an expensive primary raw material employed in the manufacture of various polymeric materials, improve economic efficiency production. The use of these pellets will be a great way to increase profitability, not only because it reduces the cost, but also increases its quality. Another positive aspect of the secondary granules can be called that granules are stored for a long time, because they do not absorb moisture, does not alter the physical properties (narimer are not subject to delamination). Plastic granules have a constant bulk density, which makes it possible stabilize the process of polymer processing. From the above we can conclude that the waste polymers to give 2 nd life in the form of secondary granules, which on the one hand, profitable companies (waste in production may participate in the second round), on the other – to solve environmental problems.
