Waste management, including recycling and valorisation, is a growing market. Nowadays, the key factors are not only the waste sorting but also a better management of their valorisation at an industrial scale.
Certech is working with different industrial partners and has developed several pilot units to study alternative processes which are economically sustainable. Fields of competence include:
- The characterisation of waste to optimize the recycling and volorisation processes
- The valorisation of waste (formulation and process, properties of recycled materials, recycling of metals)
- The transformation of waste into hydrocarbons, to access to “recycled energy”
In addition to several private research contracts, Certech is involved in different public-funded projects focused on the valorisation of recycled materials or waste (Technopoly, RECYCOMPOSITE, RECYPOLYMER, RECYPLUS, REVADEC II, RARETE, PHOENIX, BIOMAT).
