The specific objectives for PRIMUS Project are set in the following main areas;

  • Eliminate hazardous substances from the recycled material so it can be safely circulated and to be used again.
  • Develop robust sampling protocols to know the quality of plastic waste feedstock.
  • Ensure safe processes by measuring hazardous volatile organic compounds generated during the recycling process.
  • Develop sensor-based identification technologies to measure the degradation degree of plastic and develop methods to reduce it.
  • Assess the suitability of the new recycled material for the manufacturing of high added value components and parts (Pilot Cases).
  • Validate standard screening methods for hazardous substances (PRE 1000) to assure compliance with plastic product legislation.
  • Demonstrate food safety compliance of the recycled plastics to use in food contact in refrigerators.
  • Develop Ecoprofiles for the recycled materials to support environmental performance claims.
  • Commission an interoperable, immutable, and privacy-preserving information management system to certify the recycled material content in products.
  • Demonstrate the economic potential of PRIMUS to plastic recycling approach by generating circular business and financial models for market roll-out.
  • Sense the general public opinion on plastic recycling and consumption patterns to identify drivers and barriers for social engagement.
  • Engage society at scientific, industrial and citizen levels though dedicated channels to raise awareness and communicate the need to act.
  • Develop an environmental and social aspects -based methodology for sustainability assessment of recycled plastics.
  • Strengthen supply chain traceability and transparency by making LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) data readily and immutably available for evaluation.
  • Develop recycled plastics datasheets and sustainability models available to the community for further knowledges dissemination.
