Project description

Transitioning to more efficient plastic recycling systems

Every year, the EU generates more than 20 million tonnes of plastic waste, but less than 30 % is recycled. One way to reduce this waste is to increase recyclability of post-consumer mixed plastics. The EU-funded UPLIFT project is developing scalable enzymatic and microbial degradation processes to selectively depolymerize and upcycle plastic packaging waste currently considered unrecyclable. Eco-design of renewable and easy-recyclable eco-polymers will pave the way to a sustainable plastic system, making packaging an available feedstock for the circular economy, also thanks to a biorefinery approach. By keeping plastic waste in the loop and integrating biobased building blocks instead of virgin fossil-based monomers, UPLIFT will reduce plastic waste generation and greenhouse gas emissions associated with its production.
