We are a team of chemist and engineers, coming from different backgrounds; experienced in process and chemical engineering, chemistry, packaging and business administration. Our collaboration became consistent in 2015 at University of Calabria and the focus on this topic has moved us from our previous activity; afterwards, Recyclinnova was incorporated and the ZEROPET project was presented to several competitions, in some of which (e.g. StartCup, Climate Launchpad) was awarded. The company was also supported at early stage by Technest Incubator (Cosenza, Italy); the ZEROPET technology was registered as trade mark and after several steps an industrial patent was issued too. Over the last year Recyclinnova joined the World Alliance for efficient solutions and we passed the first round of Hello Tomorrow event. We are strongly determined to bring this project until the complete realization but we need qualified partners who can help us investing in the project with funds and expertise.

From post-consumer PET, also high contaminated PET, we can produce valuable chemicals. The technology operates in mild conditions and caps and labels can be processed together with the PET packaging waste without preliminary sorting. The final product is pure terephthalic acid and two other co-products; both of them are commodities with huge market. This chemical process does not cause downgrading of plastics which normally occurs in mechanical recycling.
