ECOMONDO 2023: PLASMARE PROJECT PRESENTED AT MASE BOOTH

During the presentation event of the research projects co-funded by MASE that are part of the Research Calls for the Development of New Technologies for Recovery, Recycling and Treatment of WEEE and Waste Not Served by Supply Chain Consortia and Ecodesign, 2017, 2018 and Prospects editions, which took place yesterday Thursday, Nov. 9, 2023 at Ecomondo at the stand of the Ministry of Environment and Energy Security, Dr. Gabriella Di Carlo, Senior Researcher at CNR-ISMN, explained the progress made in the field of recycling and reuse of hard plastics, materials not served by Supply Chain Consortia but not managed by the Consortia.ssa Gabriella Di Carlo, Senior Researcher at CNR-ISMN, outlined the progress made in the field of recycling and reuse of hard plastics, materials that are not managed by supply chain consortia but can be recycled to be a source of revenue and not a cost for governments, as part of the PLASMARE project co-funded by MASE and implemented by the Institute for the Study of Nanostructured Materials (ISMN) and the Institute on Atmospheric Pollution (IIA) of the CNR together with ESPER Benefit Society. The speech was then concluded by the General Manager of Esper Società Benefit Srl, Attilio Tornavacca, who specified how the revenues from the divestment are currently achieved only in some regions of Italy and that for the valorization of hard plastics there is ample room for the diffusion of recycling activities.

The goal of the event was not only to give visibility to the projects to a wider audience but served primarily to transfer knowledge to specific target audiences so that important opportunities for the continuity of the projects themselves and their funding would not be missed.

The event was curated and presented by Dr. Mary Deodati, Div. IV, DG EC MASE.
