With the new sIRoPAD, Centexbel-VKC is now able to perform Near Infrared measurements to assess the composition of plastic samples directly from production or recycling.
This apparatus is suited for all non-black plastic flakes, granules or pellets up to ca. 100 grams per sample. The maximum measuring time is less than 15 minutes!
OVAM gave Centexbel, the Belgian textile research center, the assignment to map the 'hidden' flows of professional textiles. Based on the results of this research, a guideline was developed. This guideline wants to inspire and encourage producers, suppliers and users of professional textile to give the circular idea a boost!
