On Novem­ber 29, 2023, the sec­ond inter-sec­toral debate unfold­ed with­in the plas­ti­cLIFE­cy­cle project. This time, the PLC project team vis­it­ed the Nysa munic­i­pal­i­ty, joined by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Przed­siębiorstwo Gospo­dar­ki Komu­nal­nej EKOM Sp z o o in Nysa, Zakład Komu­nal­ny in Opole, and Nys­ka Ener­gety­ka Cieplna Nysa Sp. z o. o. The pur­pose was to engage in dis­cus­sions regard­ing present and future chal­lenges, as well as oppor­tu­ni­ties in waste man­age­ment.

Through­out the debate, the pro­jec­t’s ben­e­fi­cia­ries, name­ly INVESTEKO S.A., EkoPart­ner Sile­sia, and the Euro­pean Eco­log­i­cal Respon­si­bil­i­ty Forum, pro­vid­ed the invit­ed guests with insights into the tech­ni­cal, tech­no­log­i­cal, and legal facets of the plas­ti­cLIFE­cy­cle plant.

We extend our grat­i­tude to all par­tic­i­pants for their enthu­si­as­tic involve­ment in the debate and for pro­vid­ing us with the invalu­able oppor­tu­ni­ty to share knowl­edge and expe­ri­ences in such an engag­ing man­ner.

A pho­to col­lage from the debate is pre­sent­ed below.

Co-financing institutions

Objective 1

                                      to design, implement, test and validate the pilot PLC plant for efficient sorting of mixed hard plastic waste

Objective 2

                                    to implement standardized PLC-compatible procedures for mixed hard plastic waste pre-sorting in municipal waste treatment plants and thus to create standardized waste stream as an input to PLCplant (3,500t/y)

Objective 3

                                  to design, implement, test and validate the pilot unit for production of tailored compounds for products manufacturing with 70-90% recycled material from PLC (capacity 400t/y)

Objective 4

                                            to design, implement, test and validate the innovative mobile 3Dprinting prototype with 100% recycled material from PLC (capacity 65t/y)

Objective 5

                                    to establish new circular business network (i.e. PLCnetwork) to boost cooperation between municipal waste treatment plants, plastic-recyclers and converters (12 plants, 3 countries)

Objective 6

                                        to increase the quality of recycled polyolefins reaching levels of food packaging production - 3 newly developed tailored compounds

Objective 7

                                      to develop 5 market-ready products using bulk amounts (70-100%) of PLC-recycled materials

Objective 8

                                          to prepare PLCtechnology replication&transfer starting with environmental decisions for two full-scale plants
