Microplastics in Inland Waters – Investigation and Modeling of Entries and Whereabouts in the Danube Area as a Basis for Action Planning
October 2017
September 2020

The goal of this project is to achieve a first-ever accounting of macro-, meso- and microplastics released into the German part of the Danube river basin, with measuring stations at its main tributaries. Microplastic particles (particles < 5 mm) are examined by using various, complementary analytical methods.

Ship-Based Treatment of Plastics for the Implementation of Value Chains in Less Developed Countries as well as for the Prevention of Plastic Inputs into the Environment and Especially in Marine Ecosystems
August 2017
October 2019

Since it is technically and economically impossible to reduce the amount of plastic waste in oceans, solutions to cut the entry of such substances into the environment must be developed. Developing countries, however, often lack land-based approaches to such solutions.

solvoPET

Development of a Recycling Technology for PET Waste Plastics from Multilayer Material and Other Waste Composites
October 2017
September 2020

solvoPET aims to develop a solvolytic recycling process for materials made of PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) in multilayer or mixed materials and to carry out experimental trials. Inactive patents for solvolysis of single-variety PET waste form the basis for this research: those solvolytic processes will be enhanced into a continuous waste treatment concept that can recycle PET waste.
