Determining the fraction of blowing agent released from refrigerator/freezer foam after decommissioning the product

    Project Details


    The objective of the study is to determine the fraction of blowing agent that escapes when a foamed refrigerator is shredded and the amount released as a function of time during the following 6 weeks. The objectives will be met through performance of laboratory experiments on cut foam cubes and foam particles obtained from realistic shredding. Developed foam diffusion models will be used for evaluating and extrapolating results.
