On 29 January REMADYL took part at the online Workshop “Innovative methods to remove hazardous substances and contaminants from secondary raw materials for the circular economy” organised by EASME B2.1 “Eco-innovation” sector.
The event focussed on seven H2020 projects, monitored by EASME B2.1, dedicated to exploring innovative technologies addressing the interface between waste, products and chemicals: CIRCULAR FLOORING, CREAToR, PLAST2bCLEANED, NONTOX, REMADYL, REACT, PureNano.
The objectives of this workshop were threefold:
- Present the main achievements to date and raise awareness about the projects among policy -makers;
- Discuss relevant activities and their contribution to policy developments in the area of circular economy, chemicals, products, plastics and ‘end-of-waste’ criteria; and
- Identify concrete collaboration opportunities among projects, strengthen synergies and optimise impacts.
Around 160 participants gathered online, including projects’ coordinators, key Work Package leaders, representatives of other on-going H2020 projects as well as representatives of Policy Directorate Generals (DGs) and Executive Agencies of the European Commission.
