Circulating municipality plastic with further developed technology

The project will result in that municipality plastic can be used as a secondary raw material in the manufacture of plastic composites instead of going to incineration. That brings the municipality plastic higher up in the waste stairs which is a priority for the project owner VafabMiljö. Municipality plastics is an often used name of the plastic that are the municipalities responsibility to collect.There is a shortage of capacity in the country when it comes to taking advantage of the plastic for reuse in the production why more players and developed technologies is necessary.VafabMiljö, and project partners TMR and PÅW, will examine how municipal plastic can be managed to be recycled 100% with a further developed technology for manufacturing plastic composite.Plans to realize the project results will be drawn up. An exchange of knowledge with other with experience of the municipality plastic will be arranged. Sustainability will be considered throughout the project.
