Project

REMADYL aims at recycling the so-called “old PVC”, i.e. PVC additivated with hazardous legacy substances (LS) such as low molecular weight phthalate plasticisers (mainly DEHP) and heavy metal based stabilisers (mainly lead).  This “old PVC” constitutes most of current hard (e.g. window frames, tubes) and soft (e.g. flooring or cables) PVC post-consumer waste.

New step for development of materials to remove lead stabilizers from End-of-Life Polyvinylchloride (PVC)

New step for development of materials to remove lead stabilizers from End-of-Life Polyvinylchloride (PVC) Researchers from the Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol) of the University of Valencia (UVEG) are taking part in REMADYL, a Horizon 2020 European Project consisting in developing scavenger materials for the removal [...]

Pilot plant filtering trials to remove lead stabilizer from End-of Life PVC

Pilot plant filtering trials to remove lead stabilizer from End-of Life PVC As part of the REMADYL project, AIMPLAS is currently studying the removal of lead stabilizers from End-of-Life PVC, using layered double hydroxide (LDH) scavenger complexes. The synthesis of this LDH complex was first optimized [...]
