Resource efficiency

Logo URBANREC

Urbanrec is a H2020 funded research project aiming to improve the logistics and treatment of waste, such as furniture, mattresses, upholstery, textiles and plastic garden products by means of innovative and patented separating techniques that will generate a net profit of 225 euro per ton.

The LIBRE project will utilise lignin-rich side stream feedstock from the pulp and paper industry, blended with a biopolymer precursor fibre, to create a more resource-efficient and sustainable carbon fibre production process.

The development of new antimicrobial treatments is an area of continuing research. This entry takes a bird’s eye view on advances and focuses, in particular, on trends toward solvent-free chemistry by plasma-assisted coating deposition methods. General principles of antimicrobial and antifouling

The aim of BIOHARV is to develop the necessary knowledge and expertise in the region to produce and characterise 100% polymer MER prototypes. The project will assist the local textile and plastic converting industries in implementing this technology.
