Comprehensive Circular Solution for 360º traceability, reuse of pre- and post-industrial plastic waste, and manufacturing of new circular products

The low recycling rate for plastic waste leads to significant losses for the economy and a high impact on the environment. Major efforts are needed to reach the European Commission’s target of 10 million tonnes of recycled polymers recovered annually by 2025 and 2030.

The FOOTPLASTIC project therefore aims to implement a Comprehensive Circular Solution to improve the circularity of the plastics sector by applying IoT technology, Big Data and BlockChain to develop know-how around 360º traceability. It also looks to generate new technical composites by recycling and reusing pre- and post-industrial technical plastic waste.
