Renewi is a leading European waste processor and recycling company. They collect waste and recycle it back into usable materials, such as recycled paper, metal, plastic, glass, wood, building materials, compost and energy, thus making a tangible contribution to a circular economy.
The problem: foil, other plastics, and paper from construction & demolition, which reach the end of the dividing and sorting line in their facility, are a difficult waste stream for Renewi to process. We are looking for innovations and start-ups that can do something with these flows.
*focus mainly on PE (Polyethylene), and partly also on PP (Polypropylene)
01. … The innovation should be truly circular, i.e. waste should have a new function or destination
02. … No downcycling (e.g. to crude oil)
03. … Innovations should be able to deal with/process large volumes of waste
04. … Innovations should comply with laws and regulations of the Netherlands
