IFPEN applies its long-standing expertise in a variety of specific areas to the chemical recycling of plastics:
• chemicals and chemical engineering,
• catalysis (homogeneous, heterogeneous),
• process engineering,
• dimensioning of pilot units.
This expertise has already been demonstrated via IFPEN’s achievements in the field of process development. The homogeneous catalysis units developed by Yves Chauvin’s team are worthy of mention here.
IFPEN teams combine complete mastery of the development chain, from laboratory through to demonstrator, with a technical and economic approach incorporating life cycle analyses.
