Abstract Information :

Circular economy increases the demand for sophisticated analytics, a key enabler for implementing recycling options. Cutting-edge approaches for a comprehensive screening give valuable insights into the different stages along the technical cycle such as for the characterization of raw materials, intermediate products and recyclates with unknown and highly complex composition. A combination of selective gas chromatographic detection technologies and comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography will provide a holistic view and deeper understanding of e.g. recycled feedstock by utilizing group-type analysis or the determination of trace level impurities.
