What we regard as processing technology:
MRC specialists regard technology as the basic polymer processing method that directly affects its consumption volumes. For example, hot-shaping, bags cutting or re-granulation can also be regarded as polymers processing technologies; however, they affect polymers consumption only indirectly; therefore, they were not included into the general production capacities analysis. Conclusions on consumption of, for example, PP used for thermoforming are made on the basis of capacity of the s-called basic PP processing, i.e. on the basis of sheet extrusion technology.
