The Israel Innovation Authority has approved the establishment of a new group—the CIRCLE consortium—to promote the development of new plastics recycling technologies.
The consortium, which is expected to receive an $8.6 million investment, is projected to help companies in the recycling sector, plastic and polymer manufacturers and academic and research institutions to develop new technologies to boost industry in Israel.
The Jewish News Syndicate reports that the consortium aims to leverage “Israel’s academic and industrial capabilities to close the existing technological gap and situate Israel’s plastics industry as a leader in the field of plastic waste management.”
