20130924 Ioniqa - Mr. Marcel Vilaplana – Sustainable NonVirgin PET Depolymerisation using Magnetic Fluids

Ioniqa is a starting SME from Eindhoven The Netherlands. It produces and sells magnetic smart materials used in automotive and other industries. Ioniqa has developed a catalytic method to depolymerise waste PET to its PTA monomers. A major advantage is that the process and the production of monomers are not affected by color agents in the PET bottle. The colors are easily separated from the blank monomers. A distinctive step in the process is the use of a magnetic fluid to recover recovers the catalyst.

The proof of concept has been established. Feasibility calculations show that this atmospheric process at modestly elevated temperatures, producing as demonstrated monomers within the specifications of virgin monomers, consumes less energy and is cheaper than processes based on shifting the polyester - monomer equilibrium. www.ioniqa.com
