Our Approach

PlastiCity focuses on finding new combinations of technical options and urban collaboration models. The project includes the development and demonstration of innovative sustainable logistics, linked to local lumping solutions at plastic reuse and refinery hubs. We bring data and stakeholders together on Urban Platforms in a systematic way. PlastiCity is the first project in the 2Seas area that is designed specifically to support the implementation of the EU Plastics strategy in the Circular Economy.

MAPPING

Mapping actors and waste flows

One of the first steps of the PlastiCity project is mapping the quantities and qualities of waste (e.g. by making use of mobile unit). We are also surveying the behavior of the different actors involved and we will assess the geography in the 4 case study cities.

DEVELOPING BUSINESS CASES

Boosting new value chains from plastic waste

A successful circular economy requires more than just technical solutions. That's why we will implement our technical solutions in the 4 case study cities by inducing behavior change through sensitisation and systematically bringing actors together for capacity building and co-creation. We will further create and boost creating sustainable business models and cases/plans.

DEVELOPPING SCENARIOS

Developing and demonstrating logistic and processing solutions

We develop and demonstrate technical solutions for logistics, pretreatment and reprocessing. We deliver proof of what is feasible and how current market dificulties can be resolved by a better interplay betwee separation and application of recyclate. A mobile unit will be used for demonstration in 4 case study cities.

MOBILE UNIT

Creation of a mobile pretreatment unit

The mobile unit combines characterisation and (pre)processing. Through the use of the mobile unit, we will gather data by characterisation of plastic waste, demonstrate technical solutions, and sensitise actors by organising open days and a roadshow.

Our Partners

 

We foresee a quadruple helix co-creation process involving industry, government, research and citizens. Therefore, our partners bring together a diverse range of urban and academic skills, expertise and approaches and different national and local systems to identify best practice and to ensure that we can develop a replicable model relevant to other urban environments in the 2Seas region.
