Implementation of a cork return system within the framework of the circular economy

Funded by:
Co-financed by the Generalitat de Catalunya, Department of the Environment and Housing, Waste Agency of Catalonia.

The main objective is to determine the feasibility of applying a system for collecting corks and new valorization alternatives in order to promote their recycling. Corks are currently managed in the organic fraction of cork waste.

Equally, it is considered to obtain the best option for recycling corks from a technical perspective and economic profitability for obtaining products or applications of corks once crushed. This process must integrate all the economic and social agents involved in the process of collecting, recycling and revaluation of corks.
