On February 23 to 25, Lein Tange, Sustainability Director at ICL Group and the partner responsible for bromine recovery within PLAST2bCLEANED, attended AMI Fire Resistance in plastics online conference.
Lein presented PLAST2bCLEANED, together with Mark Leifer, as part of the paper entitled ‘Who is afraid of brominated flame retardants’.
PLAST2bCLEANED will close three loops using dissolution under superheated conditions by separation of polymer, bromine and antimony trioxide.
Due to the cooperation with the PolyStyreneLoop demoplant, the styrenics value chain is already mapped and will be linked to the PLAST2bCLEANED project.
PolyStyreneLoop demoplant is set up to demonstrate the feasibility of a large-scale demo plant as a closed-loop solution for the recycling of polystyrene insulation foam waste and the recovery of bromine.
