We are delighted to announce that the 3CRA consortium may start receiving its requested MOOI grant of over 3 million euros! The 3CRA consortium, which stands for Closing Carbon Cycles with Renewable Amines, chaired by Klaas Zijlstra and Andre Heeres, was assessed as innovative for the Dutch market and society, with a high degree of quality in the partnerships between relevant and experienced parties from across the value chain.
The project develops new processes for the re-/upcycling of polyamides and polyurethanes. This uses biomass waste streams and end-of-life plastics that are not suitable for mechanical or chemical recycling. Role of Ecoras: Within this consortium, Ecoras is working on performing environmental impact analyses (LCA) of the above processes/products. In addition, Ecoras will work with the University of Groningen to develop ”Predictive-LCA”.
