Cross-project collaboration

CIMPA aims at establishing direct links with other EU funded projects that have the potential to contribute to EU policy developments in the area of circular and sustainable plastic. PRIMUS Project focuses on new polymer recycling technologies to produce new technically and safety compliant recycled materials that can be used for manufacturing high value products. As result of this cooperation between CIMPA & PRIMUS, this webinar has been organized.
