EU establishes "polynSPIRE" project / Four-year programme comprises 22 partners with funding of nearly EUR 10m
A new European research project aimed at improving the overall performance of plastics recycling kicked off in late September 2018.

The "polynSPIRE" project, which is funded by the EU’s "Horizon 2020" research and innovation programme, aims to demonstrate innovative, cost-effective and sustainable solutions to improve the energy and resource efficiency of recycling processes for both post-consumer and post-industrial waste streams that contain at least 80% plastic. The project will run for four years from 1 September 2018 through 30 August 2022 and has a total budget of EUR 9.95m.

The idea is to ensure that at least 50% of all plastics containing PA and PU will be recycled, reducing CO2 equivalent emissions by 30-40%. In addition, polynSPIRE will address at the EU level any non-technological barriers, for example legislation and standardisation, and set up business models to integrate its solutions in the overall plastics waste management system.
Partners of polynSPIRE project
The EU recycling project is led by Spanish research centre Circe (Zaragoza / Spain; and comprises 22 partners from leading European research/academic institutions, government organisations, industries and SMEs. These include:
