Research on recycling of plastics gets 6 million SEK

Mistra, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research, grants 6 million SEK from the "Closing the Loop" program to a research project on recycling of green plastics and plastic waste from industry.

The research project is a three year collaborative project between the SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden (co-ordinator), University of Borås, Chalmers University of Technology and three companies.

About 2 million SEK of the funds are dedicated to research on polymers and biopolymers at the University of Borås.

Mistra - Closing the Loop is a new research program with industrial waste into focus and is aimed at creating valuable resources out of industrial waste in a sustainable way.
