'Team points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Team for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :
A solution for recycling all mixtures of waste and substitutes for fossil materials.
In France, 40 million tons of waste are not recycled and are sent to incineration and landfill yearly because of the lack of other viable solutions. This generates about 30 million tons of CO2, pollutant emissions, material loss, energy deficit, and dependence on fossil fuels.
CRYMIROTECH has developed a new robust recycling process using catalysts in the form of ionic liquids. This technology, based on the 12 principles of green chemistry, enables the recycling of up to 100% of the currently non-recovered mixed waste into primary raw materials that can be reused by industry.
The process enables the recycling of mixed waste from local authorities (e.g., waste sorting, CSR) or from industrial activities (e.g., plastics, textiles). The raw materials produced are reused by the chemical/petrochemical industry.
Our technology enables us to recycle all types of waste mixtures, unlike competing processes that are limited to polyesters (depolymerization) or common plastics (simple pyrolysis). We also reduce the energy consumption of primary raw material production by 80% thanks to our catalysts and by a more targeted reinjection into the customer's facilities.
