CIMPA- A CIrcular Multilayer Plastic Approach for value retention of end-of-life multilayer films- is a EU funded, H2020 project, that will develop a recycling value chain for post-industrial and post-consumer multilayer films (from food and agricultural applications).
Through this three-year-long project, 13 partners from 5 countries, covering the whole value chain of the sorting, separation, recycling and manufacturing of multilayers materials, will work together to find innovative solutions that will turn this waste stream into a fully circular model.
CIMPA will develop a recycling value chain for post-industrial and post-consumer multilayer films (from food and agricultural applications) to retain 12 up to 72% of their value yield based on a synergetic approach combining:
i. innovative compositional sorting (combining Near InfraRed NIR- and digital watermarking sorting),
ii. mechanical and physical (dissolution) recycling,
iii. decontamination processes (advanced scCO2-based decontamination),
iv. upgrading (properties tuning) solutions.
