VALPLAST to recover biodegradable plastic waste

Industry news

  • VALPLAST, a collaborative project backed and funded by the European Union, has been launched in partnership with AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, the CALAGUA Group UPV-UV Mixed Unit (made up of the Research Institute of Water and Environmental Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de València and the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Universitat de València), Global Omnium Medioambiente, and Fych Technologies.

  • The consortium aims to recover biodegradable plastic waste through anaerobic co-digestion treatment of sludge from sewage treatment plants (STPs), generating a waste-to-energy biogas stream and digestate for agriculture.

  • To this end, VALPLAST's mission is to examine how bioplastics can be reformulated into green energy by studying the degradation of various plastics in a laboratory setting, assessing the impact of additives used in plastic synthesis on this process and the subsequent quality of the treated sludge. This will optimize pilot plant control systems and perform cost and lifecycle analyses.
