CE-SPIRE-10-2018: Spanish Research Institute Seeks Partners Experts in Polymers/PVB Additives Characterization, Modification and Recycling

Description of the project offered: 
BACKGROUND: Currently, Lurederra holds a post-consume PVB recycling line with high performance in terms of recycling rate and glass removing rate, but the obtained recycled PVB has the shortcoming of be composed by a mixture of PVB from different origin. That’s mean that PVB with different concentrations of additives and compositions are mixed in an unique product which has limitations to be introduced as raw material in some applications of high consume such as automotive or construction.
The main goal of the project is to develop and design a sensor capable of sorting post-consume PVB in different grades according to its composition and/or properties, enabling the reuse of the recycled PVB in high quality and high consume applications, such as automotive and construction. The first idea is that this sensor could be based on a combination of LIBS and IRs technologies.
Other objectives to be achieved in the project should be:
- To develop new activators to separate the post-consume PVB into 3 or more categories according to their composition and/or properties.
- Design, construction and implementation of the separation module and integration into the PVB pilot recycling line.
- Development of new physic-chemical steps to refine the recycled PVB in 3 different formats: powder, dispersion and pellet in order to broad its reuse introducing them in different applications.
- Demonstration of the obtained final products in real industrial applications.
- Development of LCA and LCC on the obtained final products.
