Increase the volume of recycled plastic by removing the hazardous substances that currently limit their re-use, is the goal of the NONTOX project of Horizon 2020 in which Erion takes part with 11 other European partners.

The target to be achieved by 2022 is to increase the recycled fraction of plastic deriving from WEEE, end-of-life vehicles, construction and demolition waste, by removing additives and hazardous substances. The strategy put in place to achieve this is to introduce innovative recycling processes in order to produce high-quality secondary plastic free of hazardous substances.

Erion will collaborate in the mapping of the plastic supply chain, the EU legislative framework that regulates it, and in the definition of innovative solutions which will allow to overcome any critical issues. Erion will also be involved in an environmental and economic evaluation study regarding the introduction of recycled plastic in new products.
