CREAToR is a European-funded research project aiming to remove hazardous flame retardants from plastic waste

Collection of waste thermoplastic materials from building/construction, aeronautics and electrical/electronic equipment
Removal of flame retardants using continuous extraction technologies in twin-screw extruders
Reuse of the purified materials e.g. construction, automotive and aerospace applications
Design of a reverse logistics model for the value chain

is a European-funded research project aiming to remove hazardous flame retardants from plastic waste

 

 


Collection of waste thermoplastic materials
from building/construction, aeronautics
and electrical/electronic equipment


Removal of flame retardants
using continuous extraction technologies
in twin-screw extruders


Reuse of the purified materials
e.g. construction, automotive and
aerospace applications


Design of a reverse logistics model
for the value chain


THE PROCESS

The CREAToR process will comprise:

A reverse logistics process

for the collection of waste materials

New technologies

for sorting and quality control

A new purification

process to remove Br flame retardants

A labelling concept

for the Br-free material

Modification for reuse

of the purified material


TECHNOLOGIES


INNOVATION




MARKETS

CREAToR will benefit the industry both as a value-creating disposal option for plastic waste, and as a source of secondary raw materials for reuse. The initial target markets are:

icon_construction

construction & demolition

icon_electrical

electrical & electronic

icon_aeronautics

aeronautics & automotive
