Study of recyclability of printed or laminated plastic packaging films using supercritical CO2 technologies

PackagingRecyclingAdvanced technologiesSustainable materialsCircular economyExtrusionRecyclingEuropean


To promote the “valuable recycling resource” concept for industrial painted and laminated packages (injected parts and extruded films), nowadays considered as a problem, promoting their recycling in the original application (closed loop cycle) and minimising their environmental risks and impacts.


The project is based on achieving compatibility or eliminating the paint contaminants in packaging by the synergetic combination of CO2 in supercritical-conditions (sc-CO2) using innovative high-performance filters (micro-filters) and suitable coupling agents to aid dispersion.
