Separation of Pet from Other Plastics by Froth Flotation ...

Based on flotation behavior of simple plastics, flotation separation after alkaline treatment of bi-component mixtures of PET with PS and PVC was achieved efficiently. The best separation was obtained for PET/PS mixture, a floated with a grade of 98% in PS and a sunk with a grade of in PET. PET/PMMA mixture led to the worst separation.

Sorting out recycling: new separation method for plastics

Flotation separation takes advantage of PET's behaviour in water, which changes after being treated with a strongly alkaline chemical such as sodium hydroxide. The behaviour of PVC, on the other hand, does not change. Whilst PET sinks in water after treatment, PVC floats. On this basis, the researchers were able to recover the PVC
