Circular economy

In ReFOIL industrially relevant case studies are developed in which some of the common streams of multi-layered packaging waste (consisting of polyesters, polyolefins, polyamides, intermediate layers, e tc.) will be studied.

Inauguration of Recticel's recycling pilot line

The technical aim of this Cornet project is to encode textiles structures and store data about e.g. recycling processes inside the product. The technology will be demonstrated in carpets and mattresses.

The RETEX aims to restructure the textile value chain to fit the circular economy by putting economic actors to the disposition of the textile industry, by reassessing the "end-of-life management system of textiles" and by stimulating the market demands of products containing recycled materials

The RECY-COMPOSITE project addresses the problems related to the mechanical and chemical recycling of composite materials (pyrolysis and solvolysis) and the energy recovery if recycling is not possible. The applied research is conducted on the production waste stream of thermo-curing composites and of end-of-life in thermo-curing and thermoplastic composite materials.
