DyeCoo, based in Weesp, the Netherlands, has more than 15 years of experience in CO₂-based textile processing technology. By replacing water with CO₂ for the dyeing process, no wastewater is generated. Furthermore, DyCoo uses reclaimed CO₂ from existing idustrial processes, making it a closed loop operation.

Di-Plast Contact for stakeholder from the Netherlands
C-SERVEES is a European project that aims to boost a resource-efficient circular economy in the electrical and electronic (E&E) sector through the development, testing, validation and transfer of new circular economic business models based on systemic eco-innovative services that include:
- eco-leasing of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE),
- product customization,
- improved management of waste of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE),
- and ICT services to support the other eco-services.
Use of recycled plastic material (rPM) in North West Europe is homogeneously low. In packaging and building, the highest plastic-consuming sectors, only 8% of plastic employed is recyclate (Plastics Europe 2016). This is often due to the lack of information on purity and composition of recycled plastics. The Interreg NWE research project Di-Plast develops digital technology to enable complete documentation and quality assurance of recycled plastic material flows.
AquaponieBxl is introducing aquaponics across Brussels by building urban farms where vegetables grow on water using fish waste as fertiliser.
How recyclable is this packaging, once in consumers' hands? PREP Design makes a thorough assessment.
PREP is a tool used by brand owners and packaging designers. By entering all the packaging characteristics in the platform software, a detailed report lists what happens to it when recycled by consumers and to which extent it is recyclable in real-life conditions.
The ReWeee Project aims to prevent the creation of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and to demonstrate that WEEE can be efficiently sorted and re-used.
CelluTex is a Swedish advocacy platform that promotes needed actions to ensure production of cellulose-based textiles in Europe, utilizing forest resources and recycled cellulosic textiles, including cotton, as raw materials.
The PerFORM WATER 2030 project will cover the following 4 main thematic areas and will focus on different study activities and pilots (TRL 4 to 7) implementation:
- Water pathway: optimization of waste water treatment processes with innovative process technologies in order to meet the most stringent effluent discharge standards, monitoring of emerging contaminants and emissions in the atmosphere, drinking water quality monitoring and supply network optimization;
- Biosolids valorization pathway: reduction of extra sludge production, thermal valorization and recovery of energy and material;
- Material and energy recovery pathway: recovery of water, material and energy resources, biogas upgrade and anaerobic digestion optimization;
- Economic sustainability and social acceptability of new technologies through stakeholder engagement, advanced costs and tariffs analysis.
CAP HOLDING, at the Bresso/Niguarda wastewater plant, has installed two sewage sludge biomethane upgrade plants, one based on membrane technology and the other on zeolite filtration. The ultimate aim of the project is to evaluate the technical feasibility of biomethane production from sewage sludge accordingly to CEN standards.
