Comparative Assessment of Tested Technologies
22 September 2014
The purpose of the tests and the assessment is to gain
information on how to achieve the highest possible recycling rate
of collected household rigid waste plastics. The results of the
comparative assessment can be used to evaluate specific facilities
that may be viable options for treating of the waste plastics from
the City of Copenhagen, but may also be used to suggest possible
criteria for tenders for sorting of waste plastics.
The purpose of the study has been:
- To analyse the present options for recycling and determine the
need for innovation of new technologies and systems for recycling
of the specific waste materials.
- To compare cost and CO2-emissions from transportation to each
- To use the comparative assessment and test results to suggest
possible criteria which could implemented in tenders
