Plastic is used in and around almost all products and the volumes constantly increase. Historically, much plastic has been lost from recycling due to lacking ability to collect and process the materials. However, using recycled plastic for manufacturing of new products brings great savings in CO2 emissions compared to virgin material. Our research within plastic recycling focuses both on state-of-the-art recycling processes for mechanical recycling, producing clean, high-quality recycled plastic raw materials, and on product design for circularity to secure future recyclability. By developing smarter designs of plastic products and more efficient recycling processes, we can turn more plastic into a circular resource that can be used again and again to manufacture climate-smart and sustainable products.
