LIBS technology can be used to analyze a material in situ without any specific preparation. The LIBS systems therefore provide a new range of solutions for environmental applications:
- Waste sorting (clear and dark polymers, glass, metals, various grades of aluminum, refractories, precious metals, etc.)
- Material upgrading of WEEE through the identification of the following resins: PE/PEHD; PP; PA; PPT; PC/ABS-PC; ABS; HIPS; ABS/PMMA; HIPS/PPE.
- Detection of flame retardants (Bromine, Chlorine, Phosphorus) in WEEE & ELV waste
- Analysis of environmental pollution (soil contamination, detection of heavy metals, water analysis)
