Mechanical plastics recycling refers to a process of converting plastic waste into raw materials.

In principle, all types of thermoplastics can be recycled mechanically with little or no loss of quality. At present, this is practically the only form of recycling in Europe, where it accounts for more than 99% of the quantities recycled.

Materia Nova offers its expertise to improve the properties of recycled plastics in order to give them superior mechanical properties, mainly tensile and impact resistance.


  • Expertise in polymer formulation and their chemical modification.
  • Complete laboratory for processing and shaping polymers (extruders, internal mixers, injectors, mills, ...)
  • State-of-the-art equipment for mechanical, thermal, thermomechanical, physico-chemical and morphological characterization.
