Project description

The goal of '' Design from Recycling 'is the Flemish SME's to provide the necessary knowledge and support to design / produce more and better products from recycled plastics and to quantify the sustainability of these products . The specific target is the Flemish companies involved in developing and manufacturing plastic products on the one hand and recyclers of plastic on the other. This target comprises a 150-numerous designers, 350 plastic processors (mainly injection molding and extrusion), sorters / recyclers and 20 mold builders. The various sub-groups are represented in the user group. Most target companies (except recyclers) are SME's
