A New Circular Economy for the Plastic Packaging Sector Value Chain

Objectives

  • Demonstration and replication of strategies and actions for plastic packaging value chain to facilitate the transition to circular economy principles.

  • Validating 100% new biodegradable and cost-competitive materials, from renewable resources

  • Material and process design to enable ecient separation and recycling

  • Triggering the utilization of recycled material as raw material

  • Development of roadmaps concerning regional and national integration strategies for circular plastic value chain

  • Developing a life-cycle methodology to assess the performance of CIRC-PACK value chain in terms of circularity improvement.

  • Developing new sustainable business models to enable a circular use of plastic materials.

Innovative Aspects

  • Bio-based and biodegradable materials and formulations with enhanced functionalities

  • Improving circular economy of multimaterial packaging

  • Substitution of multi-layered products by biodegradable solutions that deliver similar performance

  • Improving separation, recycling and monitoring lines

Technologies

  • Separation and purification of THF (tetrahydrofuran)

  • Biobased packaging with biodegrable/compostable functionalities and barrier properties

  • Air duct and bumper/skid plate for recycling

Impacts

  • Use of recovered plastics in higher quality applications

  • Development for a broader improved stategy for implementation of new circular chains.

  • Reduction of carbon emissions and resource depletion through process optimisation and real time monitoring
