IPREM (Institut des sciences analytiques et de physico-chimie pour l’environnement et les matériaux) is a joint Research unit between the CNRS and Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour (UPPA).

IPREM pools more than 200 scientists working on physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, microbiology, for applications related to the structure of living organisms, environmental management and functional properties of materials. The team involved in RevalPET is specialized in the study of the processing-structure-properties relationship of thermoplastic polymers. Their expertise in the project concerns polymer processing (twin-screw extruder) and rheometry (capillary, rotational, elongational).

The UPV/EHU team is devoted to understanding structure, morphology, functionality and properties of semi-crystalline multiphasic polymers. It studies a wide diversity of multiphasic materials by designing and compounding blends. The techniques commonly employed by the team for its research include Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Thermogravimetry (TGA), cone microcalorimetry, polarized optical microscopy (PLOM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Additionally, electron microscopy (SEM and TEM) and x-ray diffraction are employed for morphological and structure characterization.

The Institute of Nanoscience of Aragon (INA) is an interdisciplinary research institute of the University of Zaragoza dedicated to nanoscience and nanotechnology. Laboratories are equipped with the latest generation equipment such as FESEM, TEM, RIE, AFM, XPS, TGA-DSC, FTIR, etc. Some of them are unique in Spain (UHRTEM, TITAN Cs-corrected).

The National School of Engineering inTarbes -known as ENIT- is a state-maintained establishment offering a five-year MEng course. It houses a research department, the Production Engineering Laboratory (Laboratoire Génie de Production or LGP) in which the teams Interfaces and Functionnal Materials (IMF) and Mechanics of Materials, Structures and Processes (M2SP) joint their competences for the project.

Located on the UPC campus of Terrassa, the Centre Català del Plàstic (CCP) is a public R&D centre. It is a consortium whose members the Generalitat de Catalunya, the PC, the Terrassa Town Council and the most representative associations from the plastics industrial sector. Created in 1993, the CCP’s founding aim was to be an instrument at the service of companies improvement, and that spirit continues today as R&D and technology transfer center.

The competences brought by CCP-UPC in the project focus on the link between structure / processing / mechanical properties / fracture of recycled polymers.

Oudoul64 is a SME specialized in plastics processing, specifically by thermoplastic injection and extrusion mouldings.

Oudoul64 manufactures a wide range of products for various activities such as agriculture, electricity, railway, agro-industry, military, etc… and carry out the design of pieces and products.
