As part of the Transform-CE project, several case studies will be done to assess the conditions that foster the uptake of recycled plastic feedstock in (new) products. This document covers the results of the case study at Bel Albatros, based in Belgium. A total of 20 case studies will be done, each representing one product to be (re)designed with recycled plastic. In depth support will be given to five cases per country (The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom).
The technical characterisations performed as a support for Bel Albatros enable the company to be confident in the mechanical properties of its products. Furthermore, Bel Albatros now owns enough information to provide technical datasheet in addition to its products, increasing the trust of its clients in the quality of its manufactured items. Process optimisations, especially regarding the processing temperatures, were discussed based on the determined thermal properties, that are likely to lead to a better stability of the panels and reduce warping issues.
