Webinar Enzycle | The power of enzymes: How to valorise multilayer packaging and microplastics – July 13, 2022
The ENZYCLE project, funded by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, is developing new processes to recycle enzymatically currently non-recyclable plastics such as PET trays and clamshells and PET/PE-PP multilayer packaging.
Enzymes with a high hydrolytic activity on polyesters and on polyolefins are being identified an improved to establish efficient recycling processes. Additionally, ENZYCLE is dealing with microplastics, developing a microplastic degrading system (MDS) capable of mitigating the negative impact on the environment and human health.
- To present the advances and next steps of the ENZYCLE project in the development of new methodologies for the valorisation of plastic waste through the use of enzymes.
- To offer an update on the current findings in the identification of enzymes, the production processes of enzymes and the development of recycling processes.
- To show how different projects, such as RECOVER, BIZENTE and MIX-UP, are tackling the end-of-life of plastic waste from different perspectives.
