Development of a treatment technology for used carpets with polypropylen layer

Within the term of this project, technical/technological solutions have been identified for the production of shredded fibres from scrapped carpets with a high degree of potential for further processing. By this method, scrapped carpet with a polypropylene pile can be returned to the material cycle in the form of a raw material for use in the textile industry.
