Danish Materials Network is pleased to hear the news about Quantafuel’s expansion and establishment in Esbjerg. For an extended period, Quantafuel has participated in one of Dansk Materiale Netværk’s collaborative projects concerning the recycling of hard-to-recycle plastic fractions. In the project, in which Aalborg University also participates and several other industrial partners, it looks at e.g. which chemical compounds are formed by pyrolysis of different plastic mixtures. This collaboration is planned to be expanded under the auspices of the Green Circular Transition project collaboration and will begin in 2021.
