Recycling all kinds of plastic

The Northern Netherlands is a hotbed for innovative plastic recycling. There is a great deal of knowledge of and experience with the recycling of plastics, from depolymerisation to design to logistics and handling. We have everything in place to recycle all possible kinds of plastics. This can be done through mechanical, chemical or thermo-chemical recycling.

Closed loop production

Closing production loops is part of the transition toward a sustainable chemical industry. Within the Chemport ecosystem this is one of the focus areas. Together we are laying the foundation for a sustainable economy. Therefore, we have three goals:

Green processes via chain integration
Companies collaborating in the Chemport Europe ecosystem join chains and exchange feedstocks with each other. In the near future, the chains will close, producing a circular economy. Infrastructure and a close-knit community encourage smart integration of production chains.

Closing the loop via recycling
Besides a strong focus on using green building blocks for green intermediate chemicals, Chemport Europe is expanding its network with recycling companies to kick start the circular economy.

Developing breakthrough technologies
Chemport Europe hosts many pilot facilities in which a substantial number of breakthrough technologies have been developed and are now in operation, being supported by the existing ecosystem dedicated to Green Chemistry. Examples of new technologies includes CuRe, NIAGA,  focussed on chemical recycling of polyester but also BioBTX, producing green aromats that can be used as a building block for super strong Twaron fibre. One of the specific challenges ahead is to recycle Twaron.
