The student Ivar Stokvisch from the Saxion course on Sustainable Chemistry, has worked at TPACs labs on recycling methods for Polycarbonate (PC), supplied by Falco B.V., a company in Vriezenveen that produces outdoor furniture such as bicycle shelters. He looked into the chemical and mechanical recycling, aiming at creating a loop for this stream and starting a second life cycle, as opportunity for circularity. So far, he successfully proved that it’s possible to mechanically recycle the PC and process it again: “this makes me think that there are hope and nice opportunities for developing a product, with good mechanical properties. Maybe there’s still some investigation to do, but for sure these results are a good starting point”.
