Final Report - RECFINMIX (Primary recycling of polyolefin-mixed films for high-added value applications in the blow moulding industry)

Project ID: 32766
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

Recycling of plastic film is by far one of the weakest points in all recycling schemes. The reason for this failure is that post-consumer plastic film waste is usually a mixture of diverse plastics. The overall objectives of the RECFINMIX project were both ambitious and strategic for the smalle and medium-sized enterprise (SME) partners involved - in view of the current and foreseeable market trends.

As a result of the project it can be safely assumed that a success in RECFINMIX would enable in the medium term to reach at least of 20 % recycling requirement for the whole of Europe, multiplying by almost six times the current level of 3.5 %. Their final report details the achievements and impact that this project has for Europe.
