The systematic identification of impurities inside secondary plastics flow streams can be considered as one of the key issues to certify and to classify waste plastics fed to recycling plants and to perform a full control of the resulting processed fractions, that have to comply with market demands on grade and purity of the recovered products when compared(More)
The efficient large-scale recycling of plastic waste is of increasing interest from an ecological and economic point of view, but it represents a goal that has yet to be achieved by the recycling industry. The possibility offered by different spectroscopic sensing techniques in order to identify different plastic particles to be recycled, with particular(More)
The efficient large-scale recycling of plastic waste is of increasing interest from an ecological and economic point of view but it represents a goal that has yet to be achieved by the recycling industry. The W2Plastics project aims at a fundamental change of the present status of plastics recycling by creating a breakthrough technology for the recycling of(More)
The separation of pure polyolefins, polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), from post-consumer plastic waste is of increasing interest in the last years according to market requirements for their further recycling. In this paper new analytical inspection strategies, based on HyperSpectral Imaging (HSI) in the VIS-NIR and NIR fields (400-1000 and 1000-1700(More)
Olive husk (OH) quality, in respect of constituting particles characteristics (olive stones and pulp residues as result after pressing), represents an important issue. OH particles size class distribution and composition play, in fact, an important role for OH utilization as: organic amendment, bio-mass, food ingredient, plastic filler, abrasive, raw(More)
