Reforming secondary plastics to become the primary raw material choice for added-value products

Project description

Towards a circular plastic waste economy

In the EU, 25.8 million tonnes of plastic waste are generated annually – that is enough to fill 2 million garbage trucks. However, only a third of that amount is recycled. The rest is buried in landfills or is incinerated. As such, valuable materials are lost: it is estimated that 95 % of the value of plastic packaging materials (EUR 70-105 billion) is lost annually to the economy after a very short first-use cycle. In this context, the EU-funded PRIMUS project will increase the resilience of the EU's plastic value chains by securing the supply of waste plastics as feedstock. By addressing one of the biggest challenges identified in the EU Circular Economy Action Plan – how to effectively and safely debrominate the hazardous substances used in plastics – PRIMUS will contribute to circulating underutilised or non-recycled streams.
