Launches of POLREC Innovation open call

The first POLREC open call is now open! This Innovation open call aims to support SMEs by funding their polymer recycling projects. It is divided into three sub-topic that will support:

  • Testing of solutions for the chemical recycling of polymer waste (plastics, rubber, composites), with a maximum budget of €30,000 per SME.
  • Testing solutions for the mechanical recycling of polymer waste (plastics, rubber, composites), with a maximum budget of €30,000 per SME.
  • Digitisation of polymer waste recycling processes to ensure traceability and control, with a maximum budget of €20,000 per SME.

The successful SMEs will be awarded a budget based on the quote from their service provider. This budget will be used exclusively to pay for the services provided as part of the project carried out by the SME.
