The interface between chemicals and waste legislation is a major problem for the desired circular economy. In order to be able to reuse or recycle more waste, more information is needed about its composition and pollutant load. In their latest paper, Henning Friege, Barbara Zeschmar-Lahl, Beate Kummer and Jörg Wagner have investigated as examples some important products from different industries with different complexity and pollutant problems such as PVC flooring, used tires, Li batteries in electronic devices and others to learn more about real improvements for the recycling industry. The results have now been published in Sustainable Chemistry & Pharmacy.
