On September 20th and 21st, 21 Syschemiq partners gathered in Geleen, Netherlands, to revolutionize the recycling and reuse of plastic waste.
The Syschemiq General Assembly 2023, attended by LE2C along with the other 20 partners, took place successfully in Geleen, Netherlands, on September 20th and 21st.
During these two intensive days, participants had the opportunity to share ideas and perspectives regarding the project's activities and future developments.
Our consortium is committed to promoting increasingly sustainable plastic management, contributing to the ecological transition.
Currently, a substantial amount of plastic is disposed of unsustainably, but Syschemiq has the ambitious goal of transforming this reality.
The Syschemiq project is focused on researching systemic solutions to obtain high-quality raw materials from plastic waste, promoting the adoption of circular economy practices. Currently, only 42% of plastic packaging used in Europe is recycled, while the rest ends up in landfills or is incinerated. The European Union has set the ambitious goal of achieving 50% recycling of all single-use plastic products within three years and increasing this percentage to 55% by 2030, as outlined in EU Directive 2019/852 on packaging waste.
Syschemiq is working to bring significant change to the plastic recycling sector, with the aim of reaching 50% recycling of plastic packaging waste in the Rhine-Meuse trilateral region (Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany). Furthermore, the project is committed to developing and disseminating circular technologies, tools, and models across Europe, including the Lombardy region, in order to generate environmental, economic, and social benefits. This effort involves a wide range of stakeholders, including public administrations, companies, universities, research institutions, NGOs, and citizens, all determined to shape a more sustainable future for our planet.
