Mixed Plastic Separation Blending Mishaps Do Not Equal Loss In Value

 

Problem / Opportunity:
A company that sells PCABS needed a solution to fix 120,000 lbs. of material that was blended with ABS. Facing a significant loss in material value, the company was looking for options other than trashing the material or selling “as is” for export. Based upon these options, the customer would incur a significant loss compared to the original sale price of each individual resin.

 

Butler-MacDonald's Solution:
Butler-MacDonald’s analysis confirmed that the PCABS could be separated from the ABS without  significant losses in amount of material recovered. So a quotation with a written performance guarantee was issued and accepted by the customer.

 

Result:
Butler-MacDonald delivered a 97% yield of recovered polymer meeting the purity and performance standards originally agreed to in the quotation. This resulted in the use of the material as originally intended in the applications. Instead of the significant losses that would have been incurred by the other options, the customer was able to recapture their investment.
