More recycled plastic at lower cost

 An EU-funded project improves plastic recycling methods

 

Ultravisc, an EU-funded project, has come up with an innovative eco-friendly solution to recycle more plastic, and save money.

The new technology uses ultrasonic sensors to regulate the flow and viscosity of plastic during the recycling process to recover more plastic waste than before.

According to the researchers, the first results show that this new ultrasonic technology can be more effective than standard plastic recycling methods and also lead to the production of higher quality products.
