POLYURETHANE DISPOSED FOR GLYCOLYSIS: AN ALTERNATIVE “ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY” TREATMENT
A recent study has framed an alternative system for the disposal of waste from daily use plastic materials, such as polyurethane.
Sd Stampi, a leading italian company with headquarters in Carpi, specialized in the production of polyurethane molds, has always had a particularly alert eye towards the environment and disposal methods.
The study in question reveals how chemical treatments carried out by glycolysis represent an excellent solution for recycling polyurethane foams.
Thanks to the chemical glycolysis process, it is possible to obtain the initial polyols directly from the printed materials. How? Through an appropriate thermochemical process that crushes the polymer chains, making the product congenial to reuse by mixing it with uncontaminated material.
The glycolysis process represents an easy solution to get back the raw materials initially used inside the polyurethane mold.
Polyurethane is also for this reason, one of the most “environmentally friendly” materials in circulation.
