CreaSolv® Demostration Plant in Holland (NL) - EPS Recycling with POP-Separation

A Dutch cooperation set the goal2016 PSLoop Abfall Werk, to build a CreaSolv® Demonstration plant, in order to recycle External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS) and interior thermal insulation systems with flame retardants in a way that the today banned hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) is removed and the recovered polystyrene meets the Basel POP Guidelines1). HBCD was one of the most common flame retardant used in insulation, textiles and electronics.

CreaSolv® Pilot plant for post-consumer PVC floor coverings with banned Plasticizer

2019 Circular Packaging Kreisbild ENThe overall aim of the project is to produce New Products from Waste PVC Flooring and Safe End-of-Life Treatment of Plasticisers, because only recycling rates of 20% have been achieved so far, while a large percentage of the PVC waste is still landfilled or incinerated. Therefore, the Circular Flooring consortium is further developing the CreaSolv® Process to separate the PVC (polyvinylchlorid) polymer from post-consumer floor coverings from legacy plasticizers (phthalic acid esters) that are not conform to the EU REACH-Directive.1)

Recycling of hazardous Plastic Waste (WEEE, ELV & CDW)

2019.06.01 NONTOX ProjectThe NONTOX project applies multiple recycling technologies to recycle hazardous plastic waste generated from Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment (WEEE), End of Life Vehicles (ELV) and Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW). The overall objective is to increase recycling rates of plastics waste containing hazardous substances by developing two recycling technologies “CreaSolv® Process and Extruclean” to produce safe and high-quality secondary plastic materials and by optimizing the overall process economics by integration because increasing recycling rates are crucial for a circular economy as stated in the EU Plastic Strategy1).
