Project description

P2PC is targeting an even higher level of valorization for waste polyolefins, compared to international state-of-the-art. Target is to convert polyolefin plastic waste into valuable chemicals, so-called precious chemicals, by (1) proper upstream processing of polyolefin standard plastic waste streams, (2) tuned pyrolysis and (3) smart functionalization combined with dedicated downstream processing.
