DESSO, a leading European manufacturer of high quality durable carpet has been awarded a grant from the EU LIFE+ programme for the project ‘LIFE ClosedLoopCarpet’.
The main objective of the project is to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of a separation line that can separate discarded carpet material into primary resources with a very high purity. This will enable closed loop recycling of the main carpet constituents. The innovative separation line will be operational by the end of 2014.
Partners for Innovation has assisted DESSO in applying for the LIFE+ grant. During the project, Partners for Innovation will conduct an impact assessment study and provide project management support.
