Recycling of plastics 
Plastics are used widely within different kinds of businesses and there is a large need for sustainable use and recycling, from a societal perspective as well as from an industrial perspective. Swerea IVF’s test plant in Mölndal has the right skills and equipment to develop and test new methods for reusing plastic material in new products.
There are many challenges connected to this; the environmental goals are to be reached while the industry’s need, and requirement, of cost effective secondary plastic raw material has to be met – but there are good ideas and solutions. Within the project Recycling of plastics, companies can network and participate in seminars for knowledge dissemination. Companies and universities collaborate around different issues, exchange experiences and identify opportunities.  This often leads to new collaborations and joint projects.
