Earlier in November, we took opportunity to present the project, the circular design framework and some of the early prototypes at the Ecomondo Exhibition in Rimini, Italy. At the ISWA booth, representatives from partners Exergy, KEAS, Next Technology Tecnotessile, and Moretti Compact joined in.
The ECOBULK consortium met for the 3rd time, this time hosted by partner TOMRA in Koblenz, Germany. With the project entering the design phase, the new design framework was tested during the workshops and further discussions were held on material, product and demonstration slelections. During the visit, the partners also had a chance to see the inside of TOMRA’s innovation and testing centre.
