REMADYL aims to recycle “old PVC” into REACH compliant high purity PVC. By doing so, we will demonstrate the circular use of PVC for window profiles and waterproofing sheets, and provide a flagship example for the circular economy.
Over the next 4 years, REMADYL will develop a breakthrough single step continuous process based on extractive extrusion technology in combination with novel solvents and melt filtration, which has the potential of rejuvenating ‘old PVC’ into market competitive high purity PVC.
The REMADYL project – funded by the Horizon2020 Framework Programme for Research & Innovation G.A. 821136 and managed by the EASME (Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) - will contribute to the development of the EU Circular Economy Package. Safety aspects will be studied, leading to best practices, standardisation input and policy recommendations.
REMADYL is coordinated by Centexbel and unites 15 multidisciplinary European partners covering all expertises to maximise the project's impact.
The REMADYL project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 821136.
