Recycling, Disposal, REEs & Mining

Analyze Lithium compounds and other essential REE inputs to the manufacturing process to improve end-of-life processes. Identify chemicals and materials including metals and plastics for easier and cleaner separation for recycling. And improve environmental monitoring of off-gassing and toxic elements in landfill.

Recycling Analysis

From the halls of government to college campuses to our individual homes and businesses, recycling is a challenge we’re all facing – together. The environmental consequences of plastic waste are visible in the ever-increasing levels of global plastics pollution both on land and in our oceans. To help address this challenge, polymer recycling has become a growing industry, and plastics once destined for landfills are now being recycled into new products. But to get better quality of recycled polymers, it’s important to presort plastics – so accurate identification leading to proper separation is critical for the industrial plastic recycling process. Plus, it’s important to check the mechanical properties of polymers and have a final quality check of the end product. Our solutions make use of the most commonly used techniques for material characterization. Material identification and characterization can be performed throughout the entire recycling process allowing for an in-depth understanding of the materials from start to finish. These cover: Raw Materials Identification Polymer/Material Characterization Mechanical and Thermal Characterization Additionally, the recycling packages support the Plastic Identification Codes (PIC), used worldwide for packaging applications. The PIC was introduced by the Society of the Plastics Industry, Inc., to provide a uniform system for the identification of various polymer types and to help recycling companies separate various plastics for reprocessing.

Geology and Mining

Nearly everything we touch in our modern-day work and home environments ultimately comes from the Earth's resources, either from agriculture, oil or gas, or mining industries. Population growth, global urbanization and an ever-growing appetite for technologies which require resources such as lithium and rare earth elements (REE), places increased pressure on resource exploration and extraction. The Earth’s natural resources aren't infinite, which drives the importance of innovation in the mining and metals industry. Mining companies, academic institutions and contract testing labs must employ testing solutions for mining in order to meet the analytical challenges of assessing the quality of raw materials, monitoring the effectiveness of any beneficiation steps along the value chain, as well as providing process and wastewater control at high sample throughput and fast turnaround times. Mistakes in accuracy are costly, leading to the loss of revenue, loss of reputation and loss of market share. Due to the often harsh and corrosive nature of the materials tested, laboratories need solutions that are reliable and rugged, while also being easy to adopt and use. PerkinElmer's advanced testing solutions for geology and mining and all steps of exploration, metals testing, and gemology analyses, enable you to achieve robust, reliable measurements for an efficient and profitable mining operation or testing lab.


Change is not new to environmental professionals – but the speed of that change is. Emerging contaminants, new methods, lower detection limits – all of these factors and more make it challenging to keep pace. At the same time, scientists performing environmental testing are facing increasing numbers of samples – and the expectation that they must deliver ever-higher productivity with fewer resources. PerkinElmer is committed to accelerating your environmental testing results whatever your workflow looks like. We support you with: High-throughput, cost-efficient solutions, so you can run as many samples as possible Flexible technology to meet new analytical testing challenges and regulations Easy-to-use workflows that enable everyone in your lab to contribute to delivering high-quality, reliable analytical results. We provide turnkey solutions complete with analytical instrumentation, preset methods, and workflows, together with a robust consumables and accessories portfolio, informatics, service, and technical support – all coming together to help your lab meet new and evolving environmental testing requirements.
