Polypropylene is rare recyclable plastic due to its fibers destruction during landfilling and recycling. A degradation process manifests in the weakening of chemical bonds and breaking of macromolecules, which ultimately reduces the mechanical and strength properties of the polymer. This research covers the lack of knowledge in fast-indication technologies to detect degradation level. The presentation describes the current state of the research and complex system. Which is designed to real-time determining the quality of polypropylene by the level of its degradation, based on its spectral characteristics and pre-accumulated analytics. CPS toolchain is used to design this complex.
