Material recycling of plastics via thermal conversion

The project is an innovation project that aims to investigate the possibilities of recycling plastic fractions, which today is not recycled, by means of gasification. The plastic business has for a long time strived for a thermal methof to recyle plastics. Gasification of plastics has potential to be more competetive than gasification of biomass, since the price of raw material might be lower.
