The use of plastics need to be more sustainable, and more plastic need to be recycled back into new products in a resource-efficient way. RISE Testbed for recycling of plastics is an arena and test facility for plastic recycling that offers both expertise and equipment for developing and testing of new methods for repurposing plastics.
RISE Testbed for plastic recycling offers support in sustainability issues, technical issues concerning polymer materials and processing, recycling, design, analysis etc. We also conduct sustainability analysis as well as help out with legislation and education in these areas.
Our test facility in Mölndal boasts a wide range of equipment. For plastics processing, upgrading and prototyping we have equipment for granulation, extrusion and compounding, pelleting and injection moulding equipment. We have well equipped test labs for material characterisation and chemical analysis, as well as for aging and long-term studies.
