R&D Service

CADEL RECYCLING LAB is dedicated to revolutionizing the plastics industry through cutting-edge technology and a commitment to sustainability. Our mission is to drive the circular economy forward by developing innovative solutions that transform the way plastics are recycled.

Our Approach

We believe in the power of research and development led by experts who are passionate about making a difference. With a solid foundation in scientific inquiry, we’re constantly exploring new technologies and scaling them up for market integration.

Our Vision

Our ultimate goal is to increase the value of recycled plastic materials by bringing these innovative technologies to market. Through our efforts, we aim to create a more sustainable future for generations to come.

In our R&D strategy we include research projects related to recycling plastic products.

Cadel has carried out several research projects financed by both public funds and private companies.

Its experience in the development of de-inking technology among other plastic waste valorization techniques, such as delamination, decontamination, coating removal, etc., places the company in a preferential position to face new challenges.

Therefore, one of the services offered by CADEL is to provide to companies solutions to problems related to plastic waste.

For the perfect development of the project, Cadel has both laboratory and pilot scale equipment that allows it to carry out all the steps of the process developed on a pre-industrial scale.

The company has instruments and laboratory equipment typical of the plastics industry, which are essential to study the quality and characteristics of the plastics produced and to maintain control of the pilot plant.

In addition, CADEL’s laboratory has equipment to control the quality of the plastic in terms of composition and toxicity. The clearest example of CADEL’s laboratory equipment is the gas chromatograph coupled to a mass spectrometer, which analyzes the presence of certain contaminants.

It should not be forgotten that CADEL is always committed to the environment, so all its solutions are associated with a process water treatment system, so it also has both plant and characterization equipment for this process stream.
