How can a multilayer plastic food packaging be recyclable and at the same time have the optimal barrier properties to ensure the shelf life of food products?

PREFER aims to develop an all-encompassing plastics refinery concept that enables the recycling of plastics that, to this day, are unrecyclable.

Remove2Reclaim aims to develop innovative solvent-based extraction routes to remove additives, such as titanium dioxide, from different polymer matrices and to reuse both titanium dioxide and polymer in new products. This dissolution route will be a nice add-on to existing mechanical and chemical polymer recycling schemes.

Development of a novel type of thermal and electrical conductive compound with high conductivity and improved processability in a wide range of processing techniques, that will broaden the scope of possible applications for conductive composites.

Development of bio-based materials with functional properties for high-volume consumer products and better performances than fossil-based plastics in comparable applications.

The Interreg NWE project CurCol aims to demonstrate economic potential for the production chains from regionally produced plants to colorants in packaging.
