Descripción
Mechanical recycling of plastics saves raw materials and energy, while generating a great number of jobs, so it plays a key role in the new proposals on Circular Economy. An important concern in mechanical recycling is the identification and sorting of the different plastics, since in most cases the residues appear in mixed waste streams and the properties of the recycled material largely depend on the purity of the plastic. Therefore, in recent years a great effort has been devoted to the development of new methods for automated identification and sorting of used plastics. In this work the usefulness of different methods of identification of polyethylene based on the use of fluorescent markers is discussed. The results indicate that these methods can be very useful for the identification of plastic residues that should be removed from the waste stream for economical or health related issues. The fluorescent labeling is sensible to degradation processes, so the markers must be carefully selected in order to optimize the labeling stability
