Circular Packaging for Direct Food Contact Applications


Defined scenarios and data inventories for preliminary sustainability assessment

Scenarios for comparison are described using the three already defined use cases 1 Food packaging 2 Home care product packaging 3 Personal care product packaging New value chains and their products will be compared to the baseline treatment scenarios and reference packaging according to the feasible process cascades and applications The deliverable will also include process flow schemes of the full value chain in these three defined scenarios including collection sorting pretreatment recycling manufacturing of the new packaging use of the packaging for food or personal care products and the endoflife treatment of the packaging Preliminary mass and energy data inventories for all scenarios will be reported This deliverable is the outcome of Tasks T71 and T72

Communication Package (website, corporate design, logo, leaflet, rollup)

Communication package will include the homepage project logo rollup banner newsletters at least 8 social media project hashtag eg CIRCULAR FoodPack and project leaflets This deliverable will be the outcome of Task T83

Report on TBS sorting efficiency and sorting trials

The sorting result will be analyzed in terms of the tracer type tracer integration tracer concentration status of packaging items and the sorting efficiency will be calculated TBS sorted fraction will be provided to WP3 for recycling and purification and to WP4 for characterization of its NIAS and IAS status The results will be reported This deliverable will be the outcome of Task T24

Data Management Plan

Classification of data items produced in Circular FoodPack handling rules for each data type and date storage and protection strategy in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation GDPR and quality management rules This will be linked to Task T15
