New research from Cornell University aims to ease the process of chemical recycling – an emerging industry that could turn waste products back into natural resources by physically breaking plastic down into the smaller molecules it was originally produced from. In a new paper, “Consequential Life ...
The cooperation is focused on cathode active materials and battery recycling
BASF SE and Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Limited (CATL) announced a strategic partnership on battery materials solutions, including cathode active materials (CAM) and battery recycling. The collaboration aims at developing a sustainable battery value chain, in support of CATL’s ...
New results from a group of researchers at the Austrian Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (acib) and BOKU Vienna show that bacteria from cow stomachs can be used to degrade polyesters, which are used to make textiles, packaging and compostable plastic bags, among other things. On the one hand, ...
The exploding prices of raw materials and the shortage of materials due to the chaos in logistics are of great concern.
The plastics industry has recovered from the consequences of the pandemic faster than originally hoped. Companies expect this positive trend to continue. But the mood in the industry is clouded, because: Exploding raw material prices, dramatic material shortages as well as supply bottlenecks due ...
BASF acquires Zodiac Enterprises LLC assets in Caldwell, Texas
BASF has expanded its chemical catalyst recycling capacity and capability with the acquisition of Zodiac Enterprises LLC in Caldwell, Texas. The site recycles precious metals from industrial scrap, primarily chemical catalysts, and will complement BASF’s existing precious metal recycling ...
Use of innovative technology for extracting lithium, nickel, cobalt and manganese from end-of-life lithium-ion batteries and production scrap
BASF will build a battery recycling prototype plant in Schwarzheide, Germany, at the site of its cathode active materials (CAM) plant. The prototype recycling plant will allow for the development of operational procedures and optimization of technology to deliver superior returns of lithium, ...
Scientists from Lithuania proposed a method to convert lint-microfibers found in clothes dryers into energy
A team of scientists from Kaunas University of Technology and Lithuanian Energy Institute proposed a method to convert lint-microfibers found in clothes dryers into energy. They not only constructed a pilot pyrolysis plant but also developed a mathematical model to calculate possible economic and ...
Scientists have devised a novel way of tackling the mounting issue of plastic pollution -- by using bacteria to transform plastic waste into vanilla flavoring
Researchers have discovered that the common bacteria E. coli can be deployed as a sustainable way to convert post-consumer plastic into vanillin, a new study reveals. Vanillin is the primary component of extracted vanilla beans and is responsible for the characteristic taste and smell of ...
Now possible thanks to a new process
A significant part of carpet waste consists of petroleum-based polypropylene. As a non-recyclable product, disposing of it has previously meant incineration or landfill. However, a new solvent is now making it possible to recover virgin-standard polypropylene from carpet waste — with no ...
Catalytic process to efficiently convert polyethylene to jet fuel and high-value lubricants
Washington State University researchers have developed an innovative way to convert plastics to ingredients for jet fuel and other valuable products, making it easier and more cost effective to reuse plastics. The researchers in their reaction were able to convert 90% of plastic to jet fuel and ...
