How to analyse odours in post-consumer recycled plastics
SepSolve: How to analyse odours in post-consumer recycled plastics
The global push towards a circular economy has resulted in an increase in the use of recycled materials to reduce waste, with manufacturers being urged to produce or use more post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics, especially for food and beverage packaging.
However, rigorous quality control (QC) is needed to ensure the recycled plastics do not produce volatile emissions that could be harmful or have a negative impact on the packaged product (e.g., malodours).
In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to overcome low sensitivity, poor detection of compounds and slow processes when analysing recycled plastics for bad odours.
