Green Economy requires a technological leap forward
European Green Economy legislation stipulates that 25% of the raw material used for single-use plastic products must be second-generation by 2025. By 2030, the minimum percentage must rise to 30%. Unfortunately, the use of recycled resins, especially those derived from sorting municipal solid waste, are not as easy to process as one might think. They absorb substances of various kinds released by foodstuffs, which are released during dehumidification as VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) to which must be added all the volatile substances resulting from degradation processes that the resin undergoes throughout the recycling process.trattamento di riciclo.
