Multicycle Project

Our Mission

MultiCycle project aimed to introduce an advanced and sustainable recycling process as well as the value chains for plastic-based multi-materials. The project demonstrated monitoring systems for material identification and an industrial recycling pilot plant for fossil or bio-based multilayer packaging and fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composites from automotive sector. The plant was based on an innovative solvent-based selective extraction process to retrieve pure plastics and additives from mixed wastes. Recyclates were reprocessed into new value-added products.


With an overarching mission to maximise the valorisation of our finite plastic resources, MultiCycle will deliver an industrial recycling pilot plant for thermoplastic-based multi-materials. This action will be based on the CreaSolv® process (CreaSolv® is a registered trademark of CreaCycle GmbH) patented by the partner FRAUNHOFER, which will be upscaled and digitised.
