1 Nr. 1 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch European Center for Elastomeric Powders euCEP Holger Wack Fraunhofer-Institut für Umwelt-, Sicherheits- und Energietechnik UMSICHT Oberhausen, Germany

2 Nr. 2 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch Content What does euCEP do? – a brief introduction euCEP and euregio – cross-border-activities Project structure What are we doing at the moment? Future activities

3 Nr. 3 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch euCEP – a brief introduction Worldwide production and use of raw caoutchouc (rubber) ca. 18 Mio. t/a 40 % natural rubber (rubber tree) 60 % composition rubber (oil) Residual material during production of technical rubber products ca. 5 - 10 % 450.000 - 900.000 t/a (worldwide) high value raw material nowadays: downcycling or energy recovery Use of rubber 50 % tires 50 % technical rubber products (sealing profiles, shoes, automotive etc.)

4 Nr. 4 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch euCEP – a brief introduction Residual material can be transformend into powder ambient grinding cryogenic grinding euCEP concept collecting residual material under strict quality management transforming the material into powders (elastomeric powders) –ambient grinding –cryogenic grinding development of new products based on elastomeric powdersinformation and consulting in the field of elastomeric powdersnetworking based in the euregio rhine-meuse-north

5 Nr. 5 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch About the euregio rhine-meuse-north euregios support of cross-border-activities euregios on Dutch-German borders oldest ones in Europe today many euregios exist on the inner-European borders

6 Nr. 6 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch About the euregio rhine-meuse-north German name: euregio rhein-maas-nord Dutch name: euregio rijn-maas-noord founded in 1978 as a voluntary cooperation between cities since 2004 Dutch-German administration union (»Zweckverband«) regulated by German law currently 33 members municipalities, chambers of commerce most densely populated euregio at the Dutch-German border (520 people/km²) 9 employees located at the euregio-house in Mönchengladbach (Germany), in the historical Nordpark, just across the Borussia soccer stadium: Konrad-Zuse-Ring 6

7 Nr. 7 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch About the euregio rhine-meuse-north Activities of the euregio rhine-meuse-north EURES (European Employment Services)-program general activities –monthly consultation for cross-border commuters –map of euregio-area for means of leisure activities –cooperation plan for the case of catastrophes for police, fire fighters, rescue service etc. –bi-national art exibitions at the euregio-house –courses for members in administrative neighbour language –own publications, e. g. pocket dictionary Dutch and annual survey of euregional activities –CD euregio-guide with history and cultural highlights of region INTERREG IIIA program

8 Nr. 8 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch Project structure – financing co-financiers support by industry federations (regarding contents) GAVS – Gesellschaft für Altgummi- Verwertungs-Systeme, Frankfurt, Germany NVR – Nederlandse Vereniging van Rubber- en Kunststoffabrikanten, Leidschendam, The Netherlands INTERREG IIIA program

9 Nr. 9 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch Project structure – location and realisation Region rhine-meuse-north Fontys Hogeschool Venlo (The Netherlands) Fraunhofer UMSICHT Willich (Germany)

10 Nr. 10 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch Project structure – operational work and work-sharing

11 Nr. 11 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch At the moment – residual material Research in the field of residual material what amounts are aviable? –by standardised questionnaires discussion with the industry to catch their requirements –workshops –visits logistic concetps for collecting the material and quality management –case studies

12 Nr. 12 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch At the moment – technology Research in the field of grinding and using of elastomeric powders grinding of different types of rubber material –ambient grinding –cryogenic grinding (liquid nitrogen) –costs, effectivity, quality –characterisation and modification (surface) use of elastomeric powders as functional additiv for different raw materials –resins (epoxy, polyurethan etc.) –plastics (PE, PP etc.) –powder and liquid coatings –bitumen and sealing pastes –concrete, finery

13 Nr. 13 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch At the moment – technology Example for using elastomeric powders (TPE-alloys) euCEP-idea –integrated treatment –logistic and technology –new opportunities –acceptance and image –from residual to raw material elastomeric powder plastics TPE-alloy residual material

14 Nr. 14 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch At the moment – technology Example of a functional TPE-alloy water swellable TPE-alloy (self repairing sealing systems) –applicable e. g. in the field of civil engineering –low costs –easy to handle –isotropic swelling –weldable –recycling ability –rubber powder is responsible for porosity

15 Nr. 15 Gecofinancierd door Kofinanziert durch Future activities Logistics and technology logistics –realising case studies technolgoy –further work on grinding and using elastomeric powders –establishing different instruments and machines –fabrication of test samples –characterisation of test samples Information, networking, and PR continous dialogue with the industry establishing the brand strengthen the cross-boarder-activities
