EU plastics projects join forces – “multiplier effect” to boost circular economy in Europe

Nineteen innovation projects joined forces today to boost European Union efforts towards a circular economy for plastics. The ‘Plastics Circularity Multiplier’ group will communicate to policy makers, the public and industry on a range of EU-funded innovations – innovations that aim to bring plastic materials into the circular economy of the future and create new Read more about EU plastics projects join forces – “multiplier effect” to boost circular economy in Europe[…]

CREAToR project: a Europe-wide consortium aims to create a circular economy by removing hazardous flame retardants from plastic waste and re-using the purified material in high-value application

High volumes of plastic waste – for example from construction and demolition, aeronautics and electronics – pose a huge economic and environmental challenge. While the best option would be to recycle and reuse, the cost of collecting, sorting and purifying these materials is often too high, so they are disposed of via combustion or landfill, Read more about CREAToR project: a Europe-wide consortium aims to create a circular economy by removing hazardous flame retardants from plastic waste and re-using the purified material in high-value application[…]

Fraunhofer LBF and BAM develop faster procedure for flame-retardant plastics

Many modern plastic materials do not come without added flame protection. When developing new plastic compositions of this kind, the aim is to achieve an optimum combination of flame retardancy, processability and mechanical properties. Scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF and the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und –prüfung (BAM) have Read more about Fraunhofer LBF and BAM develop faster procedure for flame-retardant plastics[…]
