EIC Accelerator awards Ecopolplast a significant round of funding as one of Europe’s high-potential start-ups

EIC Accelerator awards Ecopolplast

Ecopolplast was awarded an EIC Accelerator grant from the European Innovation Council to expand innovative technology. 

Our technology converts post-consumer recycled plastic and recycled tyre rubber crumb into Ecoplastomer® – the first circular thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) made solely from recycled content.

We have been chosen from among over 1,000 start-ups. This recognition highlights the value and significance of our technology in transforming the re-use of plastic and rubber waste.

Our innovation will help reduce the dependence on crude oil and create circular economy for thermoplastic elastomers, thus restoring the environmental balance on Earth. 

“We feel honoured to have been acknowledged by the European Innovation Council – Europe’s flagship initiative for innovation that recognizes, develops, and scales up breakthrough technologies that have the potential to transform the economy into circular,” said Katarzyna Pokwicka-Croucher, Ecopolplast Founder and CEO.

With the help of the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA), we will receive the support we need to accelerate our growth and take advantage of this great opportunity.
