Recycling and environment

R&D

We have more than 20 years of experience in the R+D+i recycling of plastic materials. We are technological partners for enterprises and assist them to be able to increase their products´ recyclability.
We have participated in numerous successful cases of the investigation and development of new applications of recycled material for automotive parts, construction elements, containers in contact with food and transport containers for dangerous products... among others.
We innovate on materials to improve their properties and transformation processes. Their optimisation is an opportunity for enterprises to reduce time and costs.

Technical assistance

Assessment in recycling plastics

  • Compatibility and additivation of recycled plastic materials
  • Recyclability analysis of plastic wastes
  • Search for new applications of recycled material: automotive sector, containers in contact with food, construction sector, wood/plastic composites, etc.
  • Reduction and utilization of production cuts and shutdowns
  • Life-cycle analysis
  • Ecodesign
  • Assistance in environmental legislation and REACH legislation
  • Implantation of environment management systems (ISO 14001 standard: EMAS regulation)
  • Environmental audits
  • Environmental procedures: plans to minimise waste materials, business plans for risk prevention, preliminary studies of grounds, environmental assessment, etc.
