Creating a truly circular plastic economy remains a major challenge for Europe. Even PVC, one of the most recycled polymer in Europe, could be more frequently recycled if new technologies for complex waste combining different materials were developed. This is precisely what Project Circle is about.
The development of these technologies is vital and the entire supply chain must be integrated into this industrial set-up. We have been forming partnerships with customers, waste collectors and sorters to ensure a well-rounded approach to recycling PVC waste that enables synergies with third parties and widespread adoption of the technology for a sustainable PVC industry.
The ambition of Project Circle is to have a first PVC waste recycling industrial unit operational by 2030.
