PlastiCircle's innovative circular economy solutions are being tested in three European "pilot" cities: Alba Iulia in Romania, Valencia in Spain, and Utrecht in the Netherlands. Valencia was the first city to pilot the PlastiCircle innovations from May to September 2019. Utrecht is doing so from December 2019 to August 2020. Finally, Alba Iulia will integrate the lessons learnt in the other two cities when it deploys its own pilot from June to September 2020 (this pilot has been delayed due to the COVID-19 crisis). This is the time when the PlastiCircle project comes into its own and demonstrates real innovations that can be replicated as part of Europe's shift to a circular economy.
