The National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR) announced the first call for proposals in Innovative Recycling. Under Measure 1.2 "Sectoral R&D programmes", the NCBR will support innovative solutions to re-use waste with a total of PLN 90 million.
- Many materials can be reused e.g. for the construction of roads and levees, which is beneficial for both the economy and the environment. Recycling, one of the most common forms of environmental protection, will help improve the quality air, soil and water in Poland, as well as allow domestic businesses to benefit economically from the full use of waste, including from wood, glass, nonferrous metals and mining waste from coal. Companies that introduce innovations into recovery technologies and waste management, can receive up to PLN 18 million for a single project - says Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Science and Higher Education Jarosław Gowin.
Funding in "Innovative Recycling" will be granted to companies or their consortia to carry out projects that will include industrial research and experimental development, or only the latter. The project must relate to one of more than fifty topics in the thematic scope of the competition.
- One of the thematic areas is construction materials recycling. We are looking for entrepreneurs recovering aggregate from waste e.g. for construction purposes or for the production of multi-material mixtures. We will also support those who create, among others, disposal technologies of materials containing asbestos or produce air purification materials made of wood waste. Programme beneficiaries will develop modern technologies to use waste that will reduce environmental risks to a minimum – says NCBR Director Prof. Maciej Chorowski.
Grant applications can be submitted from 28 February to 21 April 2017. Innovative Recycling is one of the nine sectoral programs which will be announced and conducted by the NCBR this year. Detailed information about the competition is available on the NCBR website.
