Project: Plasticircle

Twenty European organisations have joined forces to reinvent the way we treat plastic packaging. Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, PlastiCircle is rolling out innovations in waste collection, transport, sorting and recycling, and aims to transform plastic packaging waste into valuable products. We are developing: smart containers to increase collection rates of plastic waste; cost-effective waste transport systems connected to IoT cloud platforms; innovative optical sorting technologies to improve sorting, and; new value-added recycled plastic products. Plastic packaging is too valuable to waste - so follow our journey and find out more as we work towards a real circular economy for plastics!
