PlastiCircle – Post-consumer packaging waste in a circular economy. Technology and user involvement.
The background and results from the EU project carried out 2017-2021 under EU's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program.
Experiences using smart technology for waste management in Oslo – short overview
The presentation will give some project/development examples explaining how Oslo thinks about plastic waste in the city.
PlastiCircle in Utrecht
A description of the pilot of PlastiCircle in Utrecht.
Expected benefits with electrified plastic waste transport
Using PlastiCircle waste transport as a baseline, new energy- and emission-data can be estimated by simulating the same transport with modified vehicles.
The relative environmental and economic impacts based on LCA/LCC -analyses will be discussed.
End applications for recycled polymers from packaging
An overview of the products developed in Plasticircle to use recycled polymer from post-consumer household packaging.
Åge G. Larsen
PhD in physics. 35 years' experience from polymer processing, polymer physics and recycling. Responsible for the coordination of the activities of the three pilot cities.
Director of production at the Waste Agency, City of Oslo. He is responsible for operation of the treatment plants for municipal waste in the City of Oslo. He used to be responsible for technical strategy and development for the treatment side of waste management in the City of Oslo as a technical director. He holds a Masters degree in process technology, and has worked in several industrial companies producing chemicals, insulation, and foodstuff before he joined the Waste Agency in 2007.
Started as policy advisor waste management for the municipality of Utrecht in 2016. Responsible for the proper disposal of post-consumer value streams of the city. Big part of my job is the source/after separation of the plastic. Switched to information advisor 2 years ago. Involved in more information/innovation oriented projects for the city; e.g. using images recognition models (AI) to predict new sweeping routes.
He holds a M.Sc. (2002) and a PhD (2005) in Chemistry from the University Paul Sabatier, France. He has been working with SINTEF since 2009, both in scientific and management positions. He has strong background in environmental issues, circular economy, and sustainability assessment (e.g., LCA, LCC).
Ola Martin Rennemo
Main field of work if software development related to national roads database, GIS, transport modelling, and energy and emission calculations.
Since graduating with a masters in Chemical Engineering Richard has been working on a range of R&D and practical projects to increase the recycling of plastics. Richard has been involved in the development and evaluation of new technologies as well as setting up recycling schemes for niche plastic packaging waste streams.
