Plastics in a circular economy

Commitment to nature


Circularity by Recycling


  • Development of pre-treatment systems to remove organic contaminants, paints and odours to increase the quality of plastics sorted for mechanical recycling;

  • Development of new raw materials through mechanical recycling of highly contaminated materials;

  • Development of chemical and thermochemical recycling solutions for high purity raw materials and contact with food.

ou Processes

  • CO2 Cleaning: Evaluate the decontamination/washing of polymeric materials with supercritical CO2;

  • Paintout: Removal of inks applied by pad printing or flexography; 

  • Biorecycling: Add value to non-compliant material processed in this way;

  • Flakes 2 Preforms: Direct incorporation of PET flakes in the film extrusion/injection process, eliminating the pelletisation step;

  • PE R-film: Direct incorporation of PE flakes, clean of paints and contaminants, in the film extrusion/injection process, eliminating the pelletisation step;

  • NewPP: Add value to PP waste for the injection of technical components, or its functionalisation as a filament for additive manufacturing;

  • Coffee Cup: Demonstrate the feasibility of a circular solution, with the coffee cup and spoon as central elements, both in PS;

  • Yogurt: Add value to waste for multi-layer production through a middle layer of recycled material, which allows for integration with FFS solutions in line with film production or with off line FFS solutions for the food sector.
