WREP (Waste REcycling Project) 2018 was a pilot project by the Italian PVC forum designed to improve the collection and recycling of polyvynil chloride in Venice. This pilot forms part of a wider, 3-year project to increase recycling of post-use PVC, and focused on the demolition and recycling sectors in particular.

Getting suppliers involved to better assess circularity throughout the value chain: a project by ENEL
To support ENEL’s transition towards a circular economy, its Global Procurement department aims to achieve a detailed understanding of the flows of its materials (components, environmental impact and recyclability of final products) through the EDP project, which involves its suppliers' commitment.
Compaction of EPS reduces its storage and transport costs, reducing pre-recycling burden for the industry
Compaction of expanded polystyrene reduces its storage and transportation costs before being sent for recycling. A compaction plant, owned by AIPE, is given for free to member firms to use.
Futur-E: 23 Italian thermoelectric power plants will get a new life, in consultation with local stakeholders and communities
Enel is a prominent energy actor in Italy. As a result of its investment in renewable energy, 23 obsolete thermoelectric power plants and one mining area are to be decommissioned.
The Futur-E project aims to reconvert these outdated plants into local facilities satisfying criteria of innovation, social, environmental and economic sustainability.

Ultra Thin White Topping is a road hardening innovation, applied to pilot projects in Frysland and Overijssel by Schagen Infra BV. To replace damaged asphalt sustainably, the company renovated the degenerated road surface using a thin layer of cement with polyseter fibers mixed in, thus reducing resource consumption and enabling full material recovery at end-of-life stage.

The industrial site is the result of the reconversion of existing infrastructures and skills of an abandoned production plant for PET. It ensures the highest quality and safety requirements.
It is by combining design with recycling that Alisea has found an original place on the corporate gifts market. Its range include beautiful, personalised items that thanks to innovative transformation process, include secondary raw materials such as paper, metal, textile or even graphite.
Rifò regenerates noble textile fibers, such as cashmere, using a proven technology developed in the textile district of Prato (Tuscany) over a hundred years ago.
A new pyrolysis process for ELT delivers high grade secondary raw materials at a lower environmental cost
Tyrebirth has developed a new technological approach for the management of ELT (end-of-life tyres) through the production of microwave pyrolysis plants. The process uses microwaves and infrared radiation to activate the pyrolysis on the tyres, generating second raw materials with an extremely low environmental impact.
