Technologies for Recycling/Value Addition of Waste Materials

IRP is looking for scientists to develop value addition of waste materials as:

1) Paper Mills Waste – Paper industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of waste having no good value addition. Industry needs a technology to convert this paper sludge into value added products.

2) Leather Skin Waste – Leather processing industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of leather sludge having no good value addition. Industry needs a technology to convert this waste into value added products.

3) Steel Mills Slag – Steel industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of steel slag having no good value addition. This slag is exported to China for value addition. Industry needs a technology to convert this waste into value added products.

4) Herbs Industry Waste – Herbs industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of waste from rose petals extraction, having no good value addition. Industry needs a technology to convert this residue of rose petals extract (Arqe Gulaab)  into value added products.

6) Carbon Black –  Waste Tyre Processing  industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of carbon black having no good value addition. Industry needs a technology to convert this waste carbon black into 1) activated carbon, 2) carbon black for low end rubber application or other high value products.

8) Ceramic Waste – Marble industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of waste marble powder from the process of tile grinding, having no good value addition. Industry needs a technology to convert this ceramic waste  into value added products.

9) Pet Bottle Waste- Pakistan produces substantial amount of pet bottles waste. Industry needs a technology to convert this petal bottles waste into value added products.

10) Rice Husk Ash – Rice industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of waste ash from burning of rice husk, having no good value addition. Industry needs a technology to convert this ash of rice husk  into value added products.

11) Nickle Catalyst Reactivation- Ghee industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of waste nickle catalyst having no good value addition. Industry needs a technology to regenerate this nickle catalyst to convent it into value added products.

12) Polyester recycling – Polyester industry of Pakistan produces substantial amount of waste from spinning process of polyester, having no good value addition. Industry needs a technology to convert this polyester waste  into value added products.
