Over the last few years, the business landscape is undergoing major changes, mainly related to the adaptation to the paradigms of the circular economy and the need to convert waste into real resources, with recycling gaining special relevance.

The recycling of plastic materials is an important economic sector and is expected to grow considerably in the coming years.

Chemical recycling is a complementary solution to mechanical recycling, mainly for food contact applications, high quality or for the recycling of e.g., mixed waste, but also for separated waste.

There are different types of chemical recycling applicable to plastic waste (both thermoplastics and thermosets) with their own specific processes to produce substances of interest to the chemical industry and recycled materials.

It is necessary to know what possibilities exist in chemical recycling, what are the advantages, what are the limitations, what is the main equipment and the products generated.

Call open all year.

You will have two months to complete the course from the moment you decide to start it.
