Technology transfer in the area of plastic waste recycling
Fifteen German plastic waste specialists, including Prof. Dr. Andrea Büttner of the Fraunhofer IVV, attended a workshop on 29.8.2019 to discuss strategies for accelerating the transfer of plastic recycling technology from Germany to emerging nations.
The workshop was organized by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the VDI Verein Deutscher Ingenieure e.V., and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). A possible first step was seen as the transfer of plastic recycling technology from Germany to Brazil. Potential projects will be discussed in October at a meeting with a group of Brazilian specialists.
