|EU funding secured for PET recycling project|
A 12-strong European consortium has secured €1.9 million of EU funding to develop processes to add value to recycled plastics for food contact applications.
The goals of the SuperCleanQ project are to develop quality control and quality assurance tools and procedures for plastics recycling processes targeted at food contact applications, to enable SMEs to conform to EC regulations on recycled plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foods.
The tools will be applied to a new process for the recycling of coloured and layered PET into food contact applications that cannot be processed by current PET recycling facilities.
The companies involved in the project – who will commit a total of €2.4 million – include Fraunhofer Institute, S+S Separation and Sorting Technology and Extricom from Germany, Smithers Rapra Technology,
The University of Exeter and the British Plastics Federation from the UK, Dentis, Aliplast and Assocomaplast from Italy, MOS from the Netherlands and EuPC and CEN from Belgium.
