Kordsa, global player in tire, construction reinforcement, and composite technologies headquartered in Turkey, has joined a new project under the European Union’s R&D and innovation programme, Horizon 2020. The Project called PolynSPIRE 1 aims at improving the overall performance of plastics recycling looking for a more sustainable plastic value chain.

Kordsa is among the 22 project partners participating in the PolynSPIRE project under the Horizon 2020 programme to strengthen the research and technology development capacity of Europe, promote university-industry cooperation and develop cooperation in various fields. The main objective of PolynSPIRE is to demonstrate a set of innovative, cost-effective and sustainable solutions for efficient plastic recycling. KoWi, the European liaison office of German research companies, hosted the kick off meeting of the project on September 25, 2018, in Brussels. The project partners who came together at the kick off meeting had the chance to get to know each other as well as discussing the project management process and technical details of the recycling processes. At the meeting, Kordsa’s R&D team shared its role and expectations in the project, Kordsa said in a press release.

The PolynSPIRE project consists of 22 partner organisations from 11 countries lead by CIRCE (Research Centre for Energy Resources and Consumption). The project has a duration of 48 months and three innovation pillars are addressed. The first pillar is the chemical recycling assisted by microwaves and smart magnetic catalysts. The second innovation is advanced additivities and high energy irradiation to enhance recycled plastics quality. These two innovations can lead up to 33 per cent of fossil fuel direct reduction for the production of polyester, polyamide, and polyurethane. As the third output of the project, valorisation of plastic waste as carbon source in steel industry is expected which can lead to reductions of around 80 per cent of fossil carbon sources in electric arc furnaces.
