Mikro+Polo participates in a sustainable project for the development of new circular business models


The purpose of the POLY CIRCULARITY project is to develop innovative technologies for the chemical and biochemical decomposition of packaging waste into high quality secondary raw materials with added value for independent use (gases, chemicals, oils/fuels, etc.) or incorporation into new products such as biopolymers.

The project focuses on packaging waste of natural origin from cellulose/lignocellulose and synthetic/plastic packaging (PET, PA, PP, PE, XPE, etc.).

The partners in the consortium are:
  • IOS, Institute for Environmental Protection and Sensors,
  • MESSER SLOVENIA, a company for the production and distribution of technical gases,
  • OMEGA, consulting, engineering, development, and research,
  • ROTO, a processing and marketing company,
  • SNAGA MARIBOR, a company for the management of waste and other municipal raw materials,
  • TEKSTINA AJDOVŠČINA, textile industry,
  • EUROPEAN CULTURAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL CENTER MARIBOR, social enterprise and
  • MIKRO+POLO, a company for engineering, production, and trade.

The main goal of the project is to establish new advanced circular processes (new circular business models) for recycling plastic/natural packaging waste, which can significantly help to increase material efficiency, and at the same time, add value to the obtained products.

The result of the project will be reflected in high-quality secondary raw materials for the use of new products intended for the domestic and global market. The operation began in September 2019 and is expected to last until the end of May 2022. The value of co-financing the entire operation amounts to 2.800.486.22 €.

The investment is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.
