The main objectives of REC-Polyolefin project are:

  1. The design and development of a demonstration pilot plant for recycling post-consumer polyolefin blends, with a treatment capacity of 1,000 Kg / h, in order to separate the fraction of LDPE HDPE and PP.
  2. The development of own technology at pilot scale and to achieve separation of waste polyolefin blends, resulting in two different fractions: a LDPE with less than 4.5% impurities and one HDPE and PP with less than 20 % of impurities.
  3. The development of products with specific applications from the two fractions. LDPE fraction is obtained by extrusion-blown film of high quality and flow of HDPE and PP extruded profiles will be used for making furniture.
  4. The increase of plastic waste recycling processes, thus contributing to compliance with the specific requirements of European Directives: 94/62/EC and 2008/98/EC.
