Sensor-based identification of plastics for recycling



Lesson Summary

On this episode, Francisco Siena VieiraVTT‘s Research Scientist, will be sharing insights about sensor-based identification of plastics for recycling, including:

  1. Key topics covered include applications of brominated flame retardants, hyperspectral imaging analysis for solid dosage forms, and monitoring plastics with brominated flame retardants.
  2. Development of active hyperspectral sensors for mineralogy mapping and plastic waste sorting is discussed.
  3. Francisco Siena Vieira from VTT emphasizes sensor-based plastic identification for recycling, using innovative methods like spectroscopy for accurate plastic assessment.

The presentation highlights various techniques such as:

  1. Near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS)
  2. Near-infrared hyperspectral imaging (NIR-HSI)
  3. Raman spectroscopy
  4. Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS)
  5. X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF)
