RECYPLUS

HOW CAN YOU ALSO RECYCLE, IN ADDITION TO TRADITIONAL PMCS, THE RESIDUAL FRACTION OF PLASTICS I.E. THE P+MC (rigid plastics such as trays, tubs and pots, as well as flexible plastics such as films and bags)?

GreenWin présente RECYPLUS :

This project aims to seek out the household plastic waste in our rubbish bags that 
ends up being incinerated, with a view to searching for ways of recycling it. The 
three-and-a-half- year research programme started off with the classification 
of household waste streams from several Walloon intercommunalities. It then 
focussed on mechanical plastic sorting tests undertaken with experimental 
machines. Once these plastics were collected and extracted, the project applied 
itself to finding recycling processes for them so that tomorrow our yogurt pots, 
tubs and plastic films can also get to enjoy a second life !
