RESULTS

The contribution of the project in terms of impacts (on the only companies to REFIBRE partners) are:

  • Waste reduction:
    • 200 ton/year waste landfill
    • 1.000 ton/year  waste destined for incineration 

  •   GHG emissions:
    • saving about 1,000 t/year of CO2 - equivalent to 100 air travels from Rome to Tokyo or 250 Euro5 cars
      traveling for 12000 km/year;
    • saving 13,000 kg/year SO2 - equivalent, equal to 1300 euro5 trucks for 60,000 km/year each.
    • saving 1600 kg/year of fine powders (PM2.5, 5, 10), comparable to 18 buses that run for 38.000
      km/year each.Risparmio 1.000 ton/ anno di CO2 – equivalente a 1.000 viaggi aerei da Roma a Toky
  • The use of recycled fibre as secondary raw material:
    • Production o f 6,000 tons/year of plastic PP compounds (20% by weight) sufficient to make about 400,000 bins with 240 litre volume for waste garbage collection
      Alternative
    • Produce 400,000 tons/year of reinforced asphalt (0.3% by weight) sufficient for the refurbishment of a 200 Km road
