Recycling of polypropylene based on ionic solvents

Funded by: -Funded by

ISOPREP [Ionic Solvent-based Recycling of Polypropylene Products] project aims towards the recycling of polypropylene [PP] products into virgin quality PP through the exploitation of a novel ionic polymer solvent designed for highly tuned solubility of PP patented within the partnership.

Main goals

ISOPREP project aims to produce recycled PP that possesses the following key advantages/innovations:

1. A performance identical to PP resin freshly manufactured from fossil sources;

2. Cost effectiveness in comparison with PP produced from fossil sources;

3. Reduced reliance of PP production on fossil resources;

4. A reduction on life cycle emissions and energy compared with the use of fossil resources;

5. It results from an entirely closed loop with negligible loss of solvent per cycle and hence negligible emissions thus non-polluting;

6. The solvent used is non-toxic and non-flammable in the process temperature range;

7. The recycling process removes dyes, colours and impurities;

8. Prevents sending end of life PP products to landfill and avoids them polluting both land and sea.
