IUK Announces Plastics Innovation: Towards Zero Waste Competition

Innovate UK will invest up to £4 million in innovation projects to reduce the harm that plastics do to our environment.

The competition is designed to support innovation with the potential to deliver circular economy approaches to plastic use (including for polymer-based textiles and elastomers). E.g.

  • developing new polymer materials
  • new product designs
  • new recycling processes
  • increasing the value of recycled polymer
  • behaviour focussed innovation to reduce plastic waste
