Certech has been active for more than 20 years in the field of recycling and waste recovery. Certech is working with different industrial partners and has developed several pilot units for waste valorisation at an industrial scale.
Mechanical Recycling (P to P):
- Thermoplastic compounding/processing
- Shredded composites valorisation
- Characterisation / redaction of technical data sheet
- Odour management of recyclates
Chemical Recycling (P to L, P to C, P to G):
- Conversion of non-recycled waste into oil, waxes, fuels, and industrial feedstocks
- Thermo-chemical recycling (pyrolysis, depolymerisation, solvolysis, selective dissolution)
- Alternative feedstock from complex waste streams: ultimate waste, biowaste, urban mining, extraction of strategic raw materials,
- Characterization of recycled products, identification of contaminants (dimers, odorous and/or organoleptic compounds, NIAS (Non Intentionally Added Substances)
In addition to several private research contracts, Certech is involved in different public-funded projects focused on the valorisation of recycled materials or waste.
