Title: From Used Carpets to Raw Materials for the Plastic Industry - Experiences and Opportunities in USA and Europe
Author: Schneider, Rulf ; Dr. Poppe AG
Abstract: The activities of Dr. Poppe AG are based on the experiences made with one of the major projects, Polyamid 2000 AG, Premnitz/Germany (close to Berlin), which is capable of processing European as well as American carpets in an industrial scale. The presentation will describe the potential for processing used carpets into basic chemicals and compounds, based on the successful technology used by Polyamid 2000 AG, and further developments by Dr. Poppe AG in Germany. The different qualities of European and American carpets and the influence of these differences on quality and economy of further processing will also be discussed, followed by a description of the opportunities of cooperation with special consideration of the interests of potential investors.
