New technology for chemical recycling of PET

In an article published on October 30, 2017, the European polyethylene terephthalate (PET) industry association Petcore Europe informed about the launch of a new European project called DEMETO focusing on the chemical recycling of PET. “DEMETO aims at enabling chemical de-polymerization of PET at industrial scale based on its microwave-based process intensification,” Petcore Europe explained.

The project has received funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
