TENSAI at the SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS Consortium – Circular Economy of PlasticsTENSAI in the SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS Consortium - Circular Economy of Plastics

SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS consortium receives PRR support to promote the Circular Economy of Plastics.

The Agendas Coordination Committee approved the project presented by the SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS Consortium, led by LOGOPLASTE INNOVATION LAB and APIP - ASSOCIAÇÃO PORTUGUESA DA INDÚSTRIA DOS PLÁSTICOS (PORTUGUESE PLASTICS INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION), with the aim of promoting the plastics industry's green transition to the Circular Economy.

TENSAI, through its plastics unit and business unit, TENSAI FURNITURE, joins this consortium, in which SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS was one of the first contracts signed under the Mobilizing Agendas for Business Innovation, the Recovery and Resilience Plan, in a public ceremony presided over by Prime Minister António Costa.

The SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS project aims to be the Mobilizing Agenda for Sustainable Plastics in Portugal, capable of leveraging the sector's transition to a truly circular economy.
It arises from an APIP initiative, led by LOGOPLASTE INNOVATION LAB, and aims to mobilize the private sector, national authorities, universities and citizens, contributing to the objectives of the European Circular Economy. The initiative is based on three pillars:

      • Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
      • Greater resource efficiency
      • Job creation

Given the complexity of the plastics industry's value chain, which involves a very large number of stakeholders (e.g. producers of plastic materials and raw materials, transformers, machinery and equipment manufacturers, brand-owners, retailers and distributors, waste management agents, among many others), it has become essential to promote the creation of an innovation ecosystem capable of involving all these economic agents, as well as consumers, in order to address the challenges presented by the Circular Economy.
The Consortium brings together 39 Companies and 10 Non-Business Entities from the Scientific and Technological System, with the aim of covering all segments and sub-sectors of the Plastics Industry and responding to the main challenges faced by the players in this new Extended Value Chain. Organizations were thus selected which, benefiting from technical, organizational and technological skills and competences, can respond to the ambitious goals and objectives of the sector's transition to the Circular Economy, while also contributing to a more dynamic, exporting and highly qualified Portugal.

The objectives of SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS are:

      • Introducing 21 innovative products to the market - which bring value to the Plastics Circular Economy and consumers;
      • 36 new patents - registering technological and scientific progress;
      • Scientific publications - sharing knowledge at national and international level;
      • 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions associated with production processes.

By December 2025, this Agenda is expected to involve around 427 highly qualified human resources in the fields of science, engineering and technology, promote more than 80 training actions and create new jobs.
SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS proposes an overall investment of €39,161,831.64 (thirty-nine million, one hundred and sixty-one thousand, eight hundred and thirty-one euros and sixty-four cents) and will receive a national contribution of €24,447,875.19 (twenty-four million, four hundred and forty-seven thousand, eight hundred and seventy-five euros and nineteen cents), and will be completed and with results achieved by December 31, 2025.
