Creasolv® Plant engineering Commissioned

23-5-2016
Basic engineering for the demo plant, that is earmarked to be built at the premises of ICL-IP in Terneuzen, the Netherlands, has been commissioned and will be carried out by engineering company EPC Engineering Consulting GmbH in Alzenau, Germany and the proprietary solvents will be supplied by CreaCycle® GmbH in Grevenbroich, Germany under license from Fraunhofer- IVV.

The successful and well established conventional recycling of packaging EPS waste is not impacted as this does not contain flame retardants. Also recycling of left overs and cut offs from the building site of new EPS which all contain EPS with the new polymeric flame retardant, is not affected.

This process can be seen as the most sustainable form of raw material feedstock recycling contributing and stimulating to a more circular economy. It is targeted to roll out this recycling concept to other EU member states, whenever the EoL EPS is coming available, fully embracing the circular economy.

There are five different working groups active to build the information data base in order to progress this project further. These working groups cover: Waste handling legal frame work, Business case including logistic cost, Detail engineering work for the CreaSolv® based demo plant, Funding and advocacy.

In view of recent developments the following documents are relevant.
