Normally, when talking about recovery and extraction, the main raw materials are almost exclusively the ones that come to mind. However, additives and adhesives play an important role in obtaining a final product with all the specifications required by the market.

In many occasions these substances, although added in a smaller percentage, can have a significant cost and, extracting and recovering them is equally or more important than the rest of the material in terms of economic cost, or even outside the matrix that contains them, they may represent a danger to the environment.

In plastic recycling, as in many other fields, extracting substances that can be used as additives can be a challenge, as it is often a challenge to extract, isolate and purify them from the containing matrix.

The extraction of additives and adhesives is an area that is present in many sectors, and of course in the recycling of plastics. Therefore, by means of different chemical recycling methods, it is possible to extract, separate and purify these additives and adhesives that are present in waste in order to introduce them back into the circular economy cycle.
