Recycling material from Wood-plastic Composites (WPC)
In principle, WPC are marketed as recyclable products. However, a specific waste legislation classification for WPC does not currently exist. The recycling depots are faced with increasing quantities of WPC which cannot be allocated to a particular area. “Internal cycling” investigations have been carried out for WPC and natural fibre-reinforced plastics. In this research project, the question will be asked as to whether a renewed material usage (“end-of-life recycling”) is technically feasible for WPC.
