Adria Mobil has become actively involved in a European recycling project

Starting in July, Adria Mobil has been taking an active part in the new European project of transforming plastic packaging and newsprint paper into new high-tech products for the automotive, packaging and construction industries. The project, entitled CEPLAFIB, is being funded by the European Commission, and is following the circular economy model. The key objective of the project is to increase the recycling rate of waste materials by 40%, while at the same time reducing greenhouse gas emissions by the same amount. 

The project, which will last until 2021, has already received EUR 1.8 million of European funds, and involves five partners from four European countries: Adria Mobil, Omaplast and Tecos from Slovenia, Aitiip from Spain, Ecopulp from Finland and ITB Institute from Poland. The Slovenian coordinator of the project is Tecos - Industrial Association of Toolmakers from Celje, which will, in collaboration with Aitip Technology Centre from Spain, define the best composite formulations for the production of finished prototype products for both the automotive and packaging sectors. The Slovenian company Omaplast is participating in the project as the main partner for the establishment of a recycling production line for the processing of plastic waste into polymer granules, while Ecopulp from Finland will cover the regeneration of cellulose fibres from newsprint paper waste. Adria Mobil is taking part in the project as an end user of newly developed material for various applications in the interior design of motorhomes, while the Polish company ITB - Building Research Institute will try to implement these recycled materials in the construction sector.

And why is this important? Because the people living in the European Union produced about 25 million tons of plastic waste just in the last year, only 30% of which has been recycled. It is known that the proper procedures for collecting, sorting and managing plastic waste are a prerequisite for recycling, but the bigger challenge is finding ways to utilize these recycled materials in a cost-effective manner. The CEPLAFIB project, in which Adria Mobil is now actively involved, may offer some solutions to these challenges.
