Reuse of fly ashes for plastic refinement

EU funded and patented technology

 

Made of fly ash, in particular from waste incineration plants, a high-quality inert material is produced in a patented process, which, as an additive, gives plastic products, for instance, strength-enhancing or flame-retardant properties.

The development of the technology has been supported by the EU under two successive LIFE projects with a total volume of over €3.3 million.

COSMOS Fenix® is a unique, disruptive and highly productive project of the closed-loop recycling industry, which has been successfully tested in two pilot plants.

In seven years' time, the technology is to be established as the state of the art for the recycling of fly ash in Europe.
