Plastics sector relies on INEGI to accelerate circularity

17 May 2023
The plastics sector wants to accelerate the «leap» towards a circular economy and, to leverage this transition, work is already starting on the «Sustainable Plastics» innovation agenda, one of the 23 innovation agendas, supported by the Recovery and Resilience (PRR) with the contribution of INEGI.

Among the project's objectives is to increase the useful life and circularity of plastic, through the design and production of plastics and derivatives in line with reuse and repair needs, and to introduce materials with improved separation of recycling properties to the market. The consortium also aims to innovate in terms of recycling, in order to make it possible to use plastic waste as a resource at the end of the product's useful life, and to innovate through the incorporation of alternative raw materials.

INEGI will be involved in the development of systems for validating the mechanical behavior and adaptation of technologies to new materials, in particular a new biofilm.

Given the complexity of the plastics industry value chain, which involves a very large number of stakeholders (from producers of plastic materials and raw materials, transformers, machine and equipment manufacturers, brand-owners, retailers and distributors, waste management, among many others), it has become essential to promote the creation of an innovation ecosystem capable of involving all these agents.

The consortium is led by Logoplaste Innovation Lab and brings together 38 companies and 10 R&D entities. It is funded by the European Union through the Next Generation EU and the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), under the operational program Capitalization and Business Innovation.
