This calculator is only focused on one of the bulky waste stream: i.e. the potential valorisation route that the CAS can generate if plastics waste stream (hard plastics and commerical plastics) is valorised according to URBANREC principles.
It also shows as an example, the type and amount of recycled plastic products that could be obtained with this new valorisation plastic route.
