Ideas to pass on? Discover Ecomaison's recycling innovations

Reading time 2 min

Since its creation, Ecomaison's guiding principle has been to develop recycling channels so that collected materials, transformed into recycled raw materials, can find a new use. Manufacturers, industrialists, innovators, waste management operators... Ecomaison provides technical and financial support for the development of your innovative projects, to help you go even further. Join the Ecomaison network and travel through the R&D projects we've developed over the years.

How does it work?

For each recycled raw material, a colored line lists all R&D projects developed or underway. Ecomaison works with researchers and industrialists to improve and invent new uses for recycled materials, such as materials from products collected by Ecomaison: wood, plastic foams, and various plastics (PVC, polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyurethane...) or CSR (solid recovered fuel).

Solid lines: Ecomaison has supported a number of projects, some of which have led to industrial solutions;

Dotted lines: innovations in progress or to come;
