gr3n is one of the main advocates and players of the European project DEMETO. In fact, DEMETO moved his first steps on a gr3n proprietary technology. gr3n strongly believes that chemical recycling can be a disruptive solution to overcome many problems related to plastic recycling i.e. mechanical recycling has some intrinsic technological, economical and sustainable limitations. A recent example is the document sponsored by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation for the banning of oxo-degradable plastic signed by important industry organizations such as M&S, PepsiCo, Unilever, Veolia and British Plastics Federation Recycling Group.
gr3n is very happy to be part of the ecosystem created by the Horizon 2020 program. The Swiss company’s main objective, starting with the DEMETO project, is to provide a concrete tool against the consolidated problems of plastic waste without forgetting the interests of PET value chain actors.
