Description/Abstract

The automotive industry faces worldwide pressure to help find environmentally friendly ways of disposing of vehicles...... Most modern cars contain between 21% and 23% of solid non-metallic materials.....plastics make up about half of this.......... In order to succesfully recycle plastics it is first necessary to identify them and sort them into streams based on polymer type...... In a project sponsored by the Ford Motor Company, Wolfson Electrostatics and the Prototype Design Group at The University of Southampton have developed the 'Triboelectric Pen'....
