Plastic Mix
Research, 2019

Several materials with different qualities are obtained from the yellow container. Once separated everything that finds a direct commercial value, it remains what they call last fraction. An unclassifiable mixture of different materials with a bad reputation for both industry and designers.


And we wonder, why? To answer that question we have carried out a social, technical and environmental research. The focus group characterizes the user's emotional response to this type of materials. The LCA allows us to understand the environmental behavior and by mechanical tests we determine the mechanical properties. The study is complemented by a market vision and its positioning against the potential of replaceable materials.
