Workshop on (Interreg) PSYCHE Project on 8 May 2019

The overall goal of PSYCHE is to produce building blocks (olefins) from plastic waste to be reused by the chemical industry. Specifically, the project aims at developing and demonstrating an innovative technology to gasify various plastic wastes fluxes. The syngas produced will then be converted in building blocks through Fischer-Tropsch reaction. The technical feasibility, economic viability and ecological impact (LCA) of the conversion process will be assessed. This FWVL Interreg project gathered complementary expertise regarding chemical recycling of plastic wastes for a successful transfer to industrialists in the region.   The workshop programme will develop as below:
