Froat flotation and polystyrene

Froth flotation is one of these techniques, which is based on hydrophobicity differences between particles. Unlike minerals, most of the plastics are naturally hydrophobic, thus requiring the addition of chemicals that promote the selective wettability of one of its components, for a flotation separation

    Surface treatment using potassium ferrate for separation

    Aug 01, 2018 A novel surface treatment method, potassium ferrate (K 2 FeO 4) treatment, was developed to induce surface modification of plastics and facilitate separation of polycarbonate (PC) and polystyrene (PS) waste plastics by froth flotation.Contact angle measurements suggest the decrease in the floatability of PC is attributed to the increase of surface wettability

    Sep 15, 2009 Sep 15, 2009 A representative sample composed of 85% PET, 2.5% PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) and 11.9% PS (Polystyrene) was subjected to a combination of alkaline treatment and surfactant adsorption followed by froth flotation. A mineral processing pilot plant, owned by a Portuguese mining company, was adapted for this purpose

    Is froth flotation a potential scheme for microplastics

    Based on the intrinsic hydrophobicity of MPs, froth flotation can remove MPs from water environments via bubble attachment on hydrophobic surfaces. This study comprehensively investigated plastic, aqueous, and operating variables in the flotation removal of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polystyrene (PS) MPs, assisted by numerous bench

    Selecting chemicals for separation of ABS and HIPS in WEEE

    The most common plastics in electronic industries are acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS). These plastics are difficult to separate due to the similar specific weights and to both being repellent to water. Froth flotation allows for separating particles by the differences in their surface characteristics by
