More about the project
Promoting sustainable raw material management and increasing the recycling of waste materials are effective strategies that could open new domains for novel technologies and innovations. This project aims at increasing resource use efficiency through the utilization of virgin raw materials and wastes for manufacturing of new value-added composites.
Opportunities for business creation in manufacturing of innovative eco-efficient products will be communicated to public and private entities in Southern Sweden, including proposals of new routes of recovered raw materials to waste managers and the industry.
