Resumen:
Una empresa letona ha desarrollado una tecnología de producción de materiales para la construcción de alta calidad a partir de fracciones de residuos poliméricos que no son aptos para recuperar polímero limpio y que generalmente se depositan en vertederos. Estos materiales tienen una calidad similar a la de los productos de cemento convencionales. La empresa ofrece su know-how, tecnología y equipos a plantas procesadoras de residuos, productores de materiales para la construcción o socios industriales. El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de joint venture, comercialización o cooperación técnica.

Tittle:
Building materials from polymer waste
Summary:
A company from Latvia has created a technology for production of quality building materials from thermoplastic polymer waste fractions which are not suitable for recovery of clean polymer and usually are deposited in landfills. The company offers know-how, technology and equipment to waste processing plants or building material producers or other industrial partners. The company is looking for joint venture, commercial and technical collaboration opportunities.
Description:
In the polymer concrete as a binding substance is used thermoplastic polymer waste. Polymer is heated till melting and mixed with inert filler (sand, gravel, crushed glass). The hot composite mass is filled in a press form and pressed to form the product.
The offered technology was developed to utilize otherwise useless fractions of thermoplastic polymer waste. There are two benefits - utilization of polymer waste and bringing into market new product - quality building material made from polymer concrete. It can give additional profit to waste recycling or building materials producing companies. The technology allows to recycle thermoplastic polymer waste which in a melting process does not produce poisonous or hazardous gases - polyethylene, PET and polypropylene.
The Latvian company has solved technological problems which prevented extensive application of the method - it has considerably increased productivity of the process and improved quality of products.
At the moment company produces polymer concrete slabs for ground covering and similar articles for local market. The products are of similar quality as conventional cement articles. The company seeks for collaboration with industrial partners offering technological know-how or full production line for manufacturing of polymer concrete products.
Advantages and Innovations:
Polymer concrete products are lighter than traditional cement analogues. They are more durable in Northern countries due to better resistance to freezing - thawing cycles. The technology allows to utilize polymer waste fractions which are not suitable for clean polymer recovery thus reducing volume of landfills or quantity of waste for burning. Transforming the polymer waste to into a marketable products stimulates collection of polymer waste, consequently reducing littering of environment. Turning rubbish into building materials reduces cement usage and therefore saves natural resources required for cement production.
