At the heart of MultiCycle is the engineering, installation and commissioning of a CreaSolv® pilot plant, and the demonstration of its performance under optimal operation. The pilot plant will handle both composites and multilayer packaging found in currently non-recycled plastic waste mixed streams, recovering high quality recycled polymers and polymer free fibres in good yield for re-use in high end applications.
LÖMI GmbH will bring together their own expertise in high-quality and innovative process engineering systems and inputs from key technology partners, in particular Fraunhofer IVV and IRIS to integrate all the critical hardware engineering (rigs, pumps, filters, piping etc.) and software systems (PAT advanced sensing and monitoring) into a coherent whole process which will be installed and comprehensively commissioned to relevant ATEX, CE and ISO standards at a suitable production facility location.
Once operational, larger scale representative waste streams reflecting the output from best, average and worst-in-class sorting systems practice in European will be treated in the pilot plant both to validate the broad potential of the MultiCycle recycling pilot plan and to provide extensive large scale demonstration of the MultiCycle pilot recycling process for both multilayer packaging and fibre-reinforced composites.
