PolyUrethane Recycling towards a Smart Circular Economy

Project description

Recycling long-lasting thermoset polyurethane foam

Thermoset polyurethane (PU) products constitute one of the most important plastic materials produced worldwide. These are foams that are flexible and rigid, long-lasting and durable, and used in many different applications. But recycling them is a challenge. In this context, the EU-funded PUReSmart project has brought together nine partners from six countries to search for new methods, technologies and approaches. The aim is to transform PU into a circular material. The project targets the recovery of over 90 % of end-of-life PU with the goal of converting it into valuable inputs for new and known products. The project consortium will develop smart sorting technologies to separate a diverse range of PU materials into dedicated feedstocks, which will be broken down into their basic components.
