The NONTOX project aims to improve the circularity of plastics, especially in electronic waste, end-of-life vehicles, and construction and demolition waste, by developing new means of recycling along with supportive design recommendations to make a true impact on the plastic-related value chain across Europe.

This exhibition showcases informative posters explaining such waste feedstocks and their potential recycling processes, along with eco-design considerations and students’ concept ideas how the recycled materials could be produced and used in the future.
