The main goal of PROPLANET is to design and optimise 3 innovative coatings for the following industrial sectors: textile, food packaging, and glass. The developed solutions will be cost-effective, high-functional, safe, and sustainable, aiming to substitute current PFAS-type coatings.
How will our vision come true?
We are a multi-disciplinary consortium of 7 SMEs, 3 RTO, 1 large company, 1 university and 1 NPO with R&D capacities.
Social ImpactsThe project will increase the social acceptance of new coatings, while also reducing human exposure to harmful substances & introducing new rules & regulations for manufacturing processes.
Environmental ImpactsPROPLANET aims to increase the functionality of coatings & products after its useful life, by including approaches for recovery & recycling, thus promoting circular approaches. Environmental assessments will be implemented to ensure that the impact is reduced by 25%.
Technological ImpactsOverall PROPLANET aims to increase the development of coating materials by creating new knowledge in circular manufacture & generating know-how through exploitation & dissemination plans.
