Life Recypack Project

Public-Private Waste Management Project in Line with the Circular Economy Criteria

The current management of commercial plastic wastes in the European Union does not meet the circular economy criteria and only in 2013, the Member States generated more than one million tons, of which 95 % were landfilled. The Life Recypack project, coordinated by the Plastics Technology Centre Aimplas, Valencia, Spain, will implement a new public-private waste management project for commercial plastic packages in line with the circular economy criteria.

The project Life Recypack is coordinated by Aimplas. Other participating companies are: Avep (Association for Valencian companies in the Plastics industries), Comelsa, the Regional Government of Valencia (Diputación de Valencia) and RCS (Spain), ReMat (Hungary) and SSSUP (Italia) (© Aimplas)

During the project, the waste management of polyethylene and expanded polystyrene will be evaluated, which generate four commercial structures: malls, stores, large retail chains and SMEs. In particular, four pilot experiences will be implemented to separate plastic wastes of commercial packages made of polyethylene and expanded polystyrene in Spain and Italy, as well as two recycling experiences in Spain and Hungary. Once the project is completed, the experience will be repeated in other 250 cities.

The results expected after the project implementation mean obtaining a reduction of 70,700 tons of plastic wastes each year five years after its end. A total of 56,600 tons of plastic wastes will be diverted from landfills and destined to increase at the same time the manufacturing of high-quality recycled plastics. Besides, this will have an impact on the generation of annual benefices of EUR 10.6 million.
