PLASTIX – Plastics Revolution for European Regions

Project Summary

PLASTIX facilitates industrial transition towards a resource-efficient economy, circular economy growth and eco-innovations in participating regions, and in other European regions. The project tackles the growing problem of plastic waste, its recyclability and its replaceability as a part of the transition towards a more circular economy.

All European regions are facing similar plastics challenges: consumption of huge amount of plastics, their recyclability, reusability and replaceability with bio-based raw materials, as well as microplastics are issues that need to be solved. Furthermore, waste plastic also causes climate change.
