Led by TÉCNICAS REUNIDAS and with CETIM as scientific coordinator, ECLIPSE will research new technological routes for the revaluation of complex polymeric waste (plastics) to bring to market secondary raw materials with high added value obtained from waste.

Recycled polymers from end-of-life vehicles will first be tested in the manufacture of different automotive components, such as seats, with up to 25% of recovered material in each part.

The massive implementation of these new technologies in place of incineration or landfill would reduce 75% of the current carbon footprint, some 3 million tons of CO2.

The ECLIPSE consortium is made up of seven other driving companies which cover the whole recycling value chain: ACTECO, PICVISA, REPSOL, CELLMAT TECHNOLOGIES, GRUPO COPO, SYNTHESIA and SEAT.

ECLIPSE has a budget of more than 7M€ and has been subsidized by the Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) within the competitive call MISIONES 2021.

The project, called ECLIPSE and clearly aligned with the objectives of circular economy, will contribute to make possible the use of secondary raw materials from the recycling of complex polymeric waste, thus reducing the use of natural resources and the pollution generated by waste.

The consortium that will carry out the research is also made up of seven other companies covering the entire plastics recycling value chain (ACTECO, PICVISA, REPSOL, CELLMAT TECHNOLOGIES, GRUPO COPO, SYNTHESIA and SEAT) and the coordination of the project office will be carried out by CETIM Technological Centre.

The Science and Innovation Missions program, for which the Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) is responsible, is part of the State R&D&I Plan approved in 2021 and aims to promote projects led by companies that develop relevant research to find solutions to the main cross-cutting and strategic challenges of Spanish society.

A total of 111 projects were submitted to this second call for proposals, of which 37 were approved. The project led by Técnicas Reunidas was the third best evaluated project.

Last May, CDTI approved financing a budget of more than 5 million euros for the DICKENS project, for industrial research in obtaining composites from natural sources.

 

The project is funded through the National Business Research Consortiums (CIEN, for its Spanish acronym) strategic program.

 

On November 3, the first consortium meeting of the project took place, formed by ENCE, BASF Construction Chemicals, Omar Coatings, CARINSA, QMC Tecnología Química, Tecno-Caucho and Pinturas BRUPER.
