Preparations for the demonstration factory will start this year, completion will take place in 2022 and the plant should be operational in 2023. From that year, Itero will annually process 27 kilotons of plastic waste into a raw material for new plastics.

CEO Simon Hansford: “With this plant, we can demonstrate that we are able to make valuable raw materials from plastic waste in an efficient, profitable way.” Ruud Burlet, the Limburg deputy for Circular Economy and Environment, sees Itero’s plans as a sign for the success of the ambitions to make circularity the engine of the Limburg economy, under the motto Chemelot Circular Hub.
