Approved the PLAST2bCLEANED’s demonstration pilot

The plant that was built in a technology readiness level 5 of the project (that means demonstration pilot) at the site of Fraunhofer ICT in Pfinztal, Germany, was approved in February 2023 and will provide a kilogram scale of recycled Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) in addition to recovered bromine and antimony fractions, all components of waste electric and electronic equipment. 

This purified ABS will then be further processed and tested by other partners (ELIX Polymers and Electrolux) shortly. 

This brings PLAST2bCLEANED closer to demonstrating that environmentally safe and economically viable recycling of antimony, bromine and polymers is possible.
