Ongoing EU projects

CHEMSKILLS (30).png

The CHEMSKILLS project encompasses the green and digital
transformation alongside circularity and the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS). The ChemSkills project aims to respond to these challenges and to identify and develop green and digital skills, in
addition to skills to produce “safe and sustainable by design chemicals” within the low-carbon energy intensive ecosystem. The project will cover several sub-sectors of the chemical industry:

  • Plastics 

  • Consumer Chemicals 

  • Fertilisers 

  • Rubber

  • Pharmaceuticals

  • Petrochemicals 

 

It will map the already existing skills and develop emerging occupational profiles and related qualifications covering upper and post-secondary VET levels (EQF levels 3 to 5) and tertiary levels (EQF levels 6 to 8).

CISUFLO's overall goal is to minimize the environmental impact of the EU flooring sector, by setting up a systemic framework for circular and sustainable floor coverings taking into account both technical feasibility and socio-economic factors.

The project will deliver improved sorting, separation & recycling technologies useful also for the current waste streams that are mostly incinerated or landfilled. It will generate policy briefs and recommendations supporting policy-making in the flooring sector. The links with the other sectors, both embedded within the consortium and nurtured through our Transition Support Group, enable to multiply the impact of CISUFLO results beyond the project itself.

CISUFLO contributes to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals:

MERLIN project aims at designing innovative solutions for all the processes required to increase the quality and rate of recycled plastic materials coming from multi-layer packaging waste: 

  • SORTING (combining optical sensors, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and robotics).

  • DELAMINATION (optimizing depolymerisation and using solvent-based processes).

  • RECYLING (techniques for repolymerization and upcycling of polymers).

  • VALIDATION (developing rigid and flexible packaging solutions and demonstrating circularity of the processes).

DigInTraCE aims at delivering a novel transparent and interoperable Decentralised Traceability platform via the development of Dynamically updated Digital Product Passport schemes that support certification and quality validation.

PRecycling aims to produce high-quality recyclates from plastics waste streams by developing an easy-to-use methodology for sorting, sampling, tracing, recycling techniques, and analysis procedures of both plastic waste streams (PWS) and recyclates, and to assess the environmental and financial viability of them in selected waste management processes for plastics waste and secondary raw materials, in order to change the current paradigm of low cost non-environmentally friendly actions such as landfilling.

PRecycling aims at achieving specific technological/strategic goals:

In the context of the funding programmes FP7, H2020, HE and Erasmus+ , EuPC has given its contribution to overall 21 projects.

 

In view of the association’s expertise in the field of regulatory affairs & legislative analysis, and in consideration of its close connection with the policymakers in the context of the «Brussels Hub», EuPC has successfully carried out tasks related to:
 

  • Regulatory analysis - both in the context of sectoral and horizontal cross-cutting legislation (e.g. PPWR, SUPD, WFD, CEAP I & II) REACH, CLP) - and development of related policy briefs;

  • Development of standards through direct participation in CEN/CENELEC Technical Committees;

  • Development of pre-standardisation documents (e.g. CEN Workshop Agreements);

  • Market analysis through the drafting and distribution of surveys among EuPC’s wide network, covering the entire value chain as well as monitoring of the use of recycled polymers in the EU plastics converting industry through the development of the MORE digital platform (recognised as official data collector of the Circular Plastics Alliance);

  • Social and environmental impact analysis and consumer behavior assessments;

  • Organisation of tailored workshops, gathering feedback from the industry and creating synergies with policymakers and EU-level and National Standardisation Bodies;

  • Facilitate discussions among policymakers, industry, and civil society through the identification of legislative gaps that might hinder the development of novel technologies and processes;

  • Communication and dissemination activities, both at EU and MS level, facilitated by EuPC’s representation at the national level in EU 27+ UK & Norway.
