Local circular ECOnomy by an innovative approach for recycling paper industry PULper waste into new PLASTic pallets

The LIFE ECO-PULPLAST project aims at demonstrating the possibility to recycle pulper waste – the industrial waste of paper mills that use recovered paper – in the manufacturing of eco-sustainable plastic pallets.

The main idea behind this project is to realize plastic euro-pallets to be reused by the same paper district that generates the material waste in the first place and creating local Circular Economy, which is one main goals of the European environmental strategy for the next decades.
