The massive use of plastics has become a severe problem for the environment. Even though the European Commission has implemented diverse regulations under the EU’s Plastics strategy, recycling technologies are inefficient, and only 14% of these materials are reprocessed today.
To alleviate this situation, Tusti has created EGREMPLARE. This innovative project introduces techniques to clean and separate greasy mixed plastic using bio-based liquids in an eco-friendly and economically viable way. This process includes advantages such as the possibility of saving up to 60% of energy consumption and avoiding the creation of new waste streams.
Thanks to Tusti’s unique initiative, it is possible to increase the recycling potential of plastic waste while obtaining a more sustainable society. That is the reason why this project was funded under the EIC Accelerator Pilot Green Deal call.
