The Fraunhofer Cluster Circular Plastics Economy CCPE® which combines the knowledge of five Fraunhofer Institutes, is researching how to make the plastics value-added chain circular, to extract fewer fossil resources, to make products smarter, and to reduce end-of-life losses. The switchover from a linear to a circular plastics economy only succeeds with a multi-stakeholder approach. To this end, we are researching systemic, technical, and social innovations – over the entire life-cycle of plastic products – in three divisions and six research departments.
Division Materials • Circular Polymers • Circular Additives and Compounds
Division Systems • Advanced Recycling • Circular Logistics and Sustainability
Division Business • Application and Demonstration • Business and Transformation
