EFCE promotes a series of biannual events, known as ECCE Congresses: European Congress of Chemical Engineering.


ECCE12 is the 12th edition of the series started in started in Florence in 1997. This year the conference will take place from 15 – 19 September in Florence, Italy.

Marinke shares TNO’s  experience on gasification, pyrolysis and dissolution of plastics.

‘There are too many plastics that we currently burn and do not make the most of. This can be prevented by keeping plastics in the value chain as long as possible, and thus reducing the use of fossil oil for plastic production. TNO achieves this by designing plastics that can be used for longer and which can be easier maintained an recycled and to develop chemical recycling technologies for complex plastics. Chemical recycling is complementary to mechanical recycling for mixed and contaminated waste plastic streams into foodgrade plastics.

For these complex plastics often chemical recycling need to be applied. TNO has broad experience in reclaiming polymers through chemical recycling technologies.’
