CIRCOPACK - Online seminarie sorteer- en recyclagetechnieken

WAT: seminarie sorteer- en recyclagetechnieken van levensmiddelenverpakkingen
WANNEER: 25 februari, van 13 tot 16.15 uur
WAAR: online


CIRCOPACK zoomt in op verschillende levensmiddelen verpakt in een heel aantal verpakkingsconcepten en vergelijkt hen voor wat betreft milieu-impact via LCA-methodologie, waarbij de volledige verpakkingsketen in rekening wordt gebracht inclusief end-of-life opties en recyclagestrategieën.

In het kader van dit collectieve onderzoeksproject organiseren Pack4Food, in samenwerking met Flanders’ FOOD, CPMT en LCPE op 25 februari 2021 in de namiddag een online seminarie over sorteer- en recyclagetechnieken van levensmiddelenverpakkingen.

Naast de lezingen van twee UGent/CAPTURE onderzoeksgroepen, Circular Plastics (prof. Kim Ragaert – CPMT) en Sorting & Pretreatement (prof. Steven De Meester – LCPE), willen we ook enkele praktijkvoorbeelden presenteren door bedrijven van innovatieve sorteer- of recyclagetechnieken die reeds geïmplementeerd zijn.

Het programma voor de namiddag:

  • Welcome and introduction by Pack4Food: Peter Ragaert
  • Sorting techniques by LCPE: Steven De Meester (Prof. at Ghent University, Laboratory for Circular Process Engineering)
    Prof. Steven De Meester will present some of the state-of-the-art plastic sorting and recycling technologies. Moreover, Steven will introduce some of the latest developments within the field of plastic waste pre-treatment.
  • PreZero: Frank Schepers (Plant Manager PreZero Recycling Belgium)
    Frank Schepers has more than 20 years of experience in the fields of waste to resources and general waste management. Since March 2020, he is active at PreZero Recycling Belgium BV, which is part of the PreZero Group (Germany), an international player active in waste management, Waste2Energy and recycling. As Plant Manager, Frank is responsible for the construction and organisation of the new PreZero P+MD sorting facility, which is located in Evergem, Ghent. With his extensive expertise and experience, Frank will present how PreZero Recycling Belgium and their new P+MD sorting facility play a key role in the processing of postconsumer plastic waste.
  • HolyGrail 2.0: An Vossen (Executive Manager at PLAREBEL)
    The Digital Watermarks Initiative HolyGrail 2.0 pilot project with the objective to prove the viability of digital watermarking technologies for accurate sorting and consequently higherquality recycling, as well as the business case at large scale. Digital watermarks are imperceptible codes, the size of a postage stamp, covering the surface of a consumer goods packaging and carrying a wide range of attributes.The aim is that once the packaging has entered into a waste sorting facility, the digital watermark can be detected and decoded by a standard high resolution camera on the sorting line, which then – based on the transferred attributes (e.g. food vs. non-food) – is able to sort the packaging in corresponding streams.
  • Q&A session (15 min)
  • Tele break (15 min)
  • Recycling techniques by CPMT: Kim Ragaert (Prof. Circular Plastics at Ghent University)
    What happens to the plastic packaging fractions collected in the PMD collection system in Belgium? What are the implications of the switch to the new P+MD system? Prof. Kim Ragaert will introduce the current recycling technologies for plastic packagings focusing mainly on mechanical recycling. Furthermore, she will highlight some future developments in mechanical recycling e.g. how can we predict the quality of a recycled waste stream?
  • CEFLEX: Dana Mosora (Workstream Consultant at DANA MOSORA Consulting)
    CEFLEX is a collaborative initiative representing the entire value chain of flexible packaging. By 2025, they target an established collection, sorting and reprocessing infrastructure and economy for post-consumer flexible packaging across Europe, based on end-of-life technologies and processes which deliver the best economic, technical and environmental outcome for a circular economy. Recently, CEFLEX has launched a comprehensive set of guidelines to help the flexible packaging value chain design recyclable consumer packaging solutions and accelerate a circular economy.
  • inDUfed: Willem van Veen (senior advisor on Sustainability and Food Contact)
    Recycling, eco-design and sustainability of paper/cardboard packaging. How one influences the other and how a chain approach can no longer be ignored.
  • Q&A session (15 min)
  • Closure

Het seminarie start op 25 februari stipt om 13 uur en het einde is voorzien om 16.15 uur. Bent u geïnteresseerd om hieraan deel te nemen? Registreer dan voor woensdag 24 februari via het inschrijvingsformulier.
