Pilot Wastewater Treatment Plant – WWTP
As one of the sustainable fabric manufacturers in Europe Tekstina wishes to invest in and operate its own wastewater treatment plant for ecologic reasons and to reduce costs. The aim of the waste management project is to select the best sustainable treatment technology and to optimise the treatment process. The WWTP project aims to determine the necessary capacity for wastewater pre-treatment, to find the optimal size of the storage basin and to determine the size of the plant for the final biological treatment.
With the project we are aiming to increase sustainability of the company and to further contribute to the care for a clean environment.
The investment is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund. It has been selected for co-financing in a public tender for “Promoting sustainable strategic business transformation and development of new business models in Slovenian companies to facilitate integration into global value chains”
Waste management as a source of secondary raw materials: POLY-CIRCULARITY
The purpose of the POLY-CIRCULARITY project is to develop innovative technologies for chemical and biochemical decomposition of packaging waste into high quality secondary raw materials with added value for independent use (gases, chemicals, oils/fuels, etc.) or incorporation into new products such as biopolymers.
We will focus on packaging waste of natural origin from cellulose/lignocellulose and synthetic/plastic packaging (PET, PA, PP, PE, XPE, etc.).
The main goal of the project is to establish new advanced circular processes (new circular business models) for the recycling of plastic/natural packaging waste, which can significantly help to increase material efficiency and add value to the new products.
The result of the project will be reflected in high-quality secondary raw materials for use in new products intended for the domestic and global market. The operation started on September 1, 2019 and is expected to last until May 31, 2022. The value of co-financing of the entire operation amounts to EUR 2,800,486.22. The investment is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund (ESRR, http://www.eu-skladi.si).
