PlastiCircle To Visit Key Project Sites In Valencia Visit

9 July 2018

The PlastiCircle project consortium will visit key sites in the Spanish city of Valencia next week, during a highly anticipated technical visit on 17-18 July 2018.


Hosted by local project partners Las Naves and SAV, and notably joined by Valencia-based project co-ordinators ITENE, the PlastiCircle partners are set to put in place vital planning for the forthcoming pilot project in Valencia – one of three pilot projects featured in the innovative PlastiCircle Horizon 2020 project.


Following the June visit to Utrecht in the Netherlands, the PlastiCircle team will now visit a plastic waste sorting plant run by SAV, in addition to an all-important visit to the San Marcelino neighbourhood. This district will be the location of the Valencia pilot project, so early intelligence gathering and an appraisal of on-the-ground conditions will be key for the future success of this phase of the PlastiCircle project.


Additional work onsite will include presentations by project partners SAV, ITENE, PICVISA, Axion, SINTEF, KIMbcn and ICLEI Europe, who will also be holding bilateral meetings with Las Naves to discuss future communications efforts in Valencia (including citizen engagement).


This Valencia visit is the second of three technical visits undertaken by the PlastiCircle consortium. Following the work in Utrecht and Valencia, partners will then turn their attention to a technical visit to Romanian pilot city Alba Iulia in September.
