Intervention

A circular Economy and a Zero-Waste result through upcycling waste from electrical systems are the ideas that give birth to the PVC UpCycling project which aims at facilitating the transition of the company's production lines from a linear economic model to a circular economy model, through the recovery of PVC from electrical cables coming from the disposal of old energy systems (“de-manufacturing"), up to the recycling of the same PVC into products with low environmental impact ("re-manufacturing"). This intervention made it possible to bring the production line and the logistics of companies to "zero waste", according to energy saving models, thanks to the use of renewable energy sources (to run the infrastructure). This project is positioned in the sector of new technologies and new systems for waste management for the recovery of urban and industrial waste in order to achieve a sustainable management of the integrated waste cycle, with the application of process and product innovations from a circular economy perspective. Specifically, PVC UpCycling involved making both the "process" and the "product" supply chains at “REDEL company”, the implementing subject of this intervention. The process innovation was implemented through the transition from a linear economic model to a circular model in which the entire part of waste (PVC and copper), coming from the disposal of electrical wires from industrial plants, was recycled to transform it in eco-sustainable products. At the same time, product innovation was carried out with the design and production of eco-sustainable products containing recycled PVC. From this analysis and the subsequent realisation of prototypes in PVC, it was possible to create components intended for building, such as coatings and components for layered walls, elements of street furniture, anti-shock flooring; foundation layer for recycling centres, etc.
