Development of digital tools to increase circularity in secondary raw materials.

The Plooto project offers a circular and resilient information system (CRIS) to help manufacturers in their ecological, digital and circular transition.

The system developed by Plooto enables waste reduction and end-to-end traceability of secondary raw materials through interconnected digital services for real-time decision-making, material and product tracking and certification.

This solution is demonstrated in three pilot projects for the recycling of organic waste, composites and permanent magnets from waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

WEEE recycling is crucial due to the rise of the electric car and the development of new green technologies, as well as the need to access rare-earth elements for the manufacture of new magnets.

Eurecat participates in the third pilot of the project through the units of Applied Artificial Intelligence, which gives recommendations during the recycling process, and Robotics and Automation, which studies the disassembly process of motors for the extraction of magnets to propose a methodology automated for recovery.

Plooto is a project coordinated by Gruppo Maggioli, participated by 20 public and private entities from nine European countries.
