VISION & MISSION

VISION & MISSION

Our aim is to revalue recycled plastic, using blockchain technology. PlasticTwist global objective is to support multiple actors (citizens, communities, inventors, innovators, entrepreneurs, public institutions) in co-creating and sustaining new forms of plastic-as-an-asset practices, strengthening both societal and circular economy actions in-line with digital social innovation principles. As such, the global vision of PlasticTwist is two-fold. On the one hand, it is to empower citizens, software developers, grass-rooted inventors and communities to co-design and co-develop trusted and easy-to-use applications and tools through an open platform environment at which blockchain technologies drive the plastics material registry, monitoring, bargaining, and pricing tasks. On the other hand, it aims to increase and sustain the awareness of all stakeholders involved in this plastics reuse value chain, fostering innovation through an increased provision and adoption of plastics as an asset services by local manufacturers, Start-ups, and SMEs. PlasticTwist's mission is thus to "empower citizens, communities, inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs to co-create and sustain new forms of plastic-as-an-asset practices, through an open, blockchain based, platform, fostering innovation and adoption by local manufacturers, Start-ups, and SMEs".

crowdsourcing_icon

Crowdsourcing

Social Media Analytics

Presentation and visualization of social media wisdom of the crowds will be offered to all of the platforms users and the open public to indicate the plastics reuse, recycling, and lifestyle perception as it is expressed in social media interactions and content threads. This will allow users to understand plastics thematic relationships and impact their awareness and plastics reuse motivation and at the same time inspire all stakeholders (from citizens, fablabers, and markets) for non-conventional and grass-rooted plastics reuse ideas and practices.

Crowdsourcing Tool

incentivization_icon

ABOUT

PLASTIC TWIST PROJECT

ABOUT

PTwist is an Innovation Action funded by the European Union under the Horizon2020 programme, and the call "ICT-11-2017 Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation". PlasticTwist will largely impact: citizens and grassrooted groups co-creation, innovative and trusted collaboration and knowledge transfer by increasing all stakeholders’ awareness; plastics as an asset potential due to increasing its circular economy re-entering; and blockchain based novel routes to markets. Innovation activities in PlasticTwist will be based upon existing open source, blockchain, gaming, crowdsourcing components, open data solutions and developments to the largest possible extent.

PARTNERS

PARTNERS

PlasticTwist consortium involves highly motivated cross-discipline communities in the areas of ICT, social innovation, inventors, communities, as well as take up networks of large scale. Moreover three different pilots are planned in three countries of varying states in terms of their economic status, their plastics recycling rates, their culture in terms of sustainability and environmental impact.

PILOTS

Three local and globally synchronized pilots intensify stakeholders involvement and engagement, with emphasis on social gains and sustainability potential. These citizens-driven use cases conceptualize local ecosystems of the PlasticTwist platform which result in sustained plastics-as-an-asset activities of incentivized communities instead of following conventional recycling practices.

Netherlands

The Netherlands has one of the higher plastics recycle rates within Europe, while at the same time the produced waste per capita is around 550 Kg a year, around 70 Kg more than the EU average. Currently there are a few systems in place within the Netherlands to keep plastics out of the streets, but at the same time a clearly visible trend of increasing the number of produce that use plastic packaging - either to increase life span or to protect products against damage. The Dutch Pilot is therefore aimed at making locally valuable and visible products and objects out of these waste streams - engaging local public in the process of recycling, rethinking, and making. As the throughput of plastic is highest at large corporates or institutions, we will focus on improving institutionalized procurement- and waste management systems, as we believe we can create maximum impact in terms of reduction and recycling plastics.

The pilot partners of PTwist in the Netherlands are Ceci n’est pas une Holding, and Stichting Bluecity. We can be reached through info@playgroundplastic.eu.

Switzerland

Switzerland

Switzerland is with 700 kilograms per head “Top of Europe” in the production of waste per head. At the same time, there is – apart from recycling plastic bottles – so far no common plastic recycling system and Switzerland is still in the process of conceptualizing of a common plastic collection and recycling system. The Swiss pilot is thus aimed at prototyping recycling ecosystems systems that can serve as role model and inspiration for politicians and citizens alike.
