Innovative recycling of pipes and profiles

The project is an innovative project with the purpose to develop and demonstrate new innovative cost and resource efficient solutions for collection, sorting and recycling of plastics from pipes and profiles. Well-functioning collection and sorting are rare today and the recovery rate is low. Recycling methods will be developed in lab and then be tested in production. The goal is that the materials primarily should be recycled into the same product category. "Closed-loop" recycling is usually most resource efficient. The project can lead to increased availability of sec.plastics.
