KET4CleanProduction Newsletter
Welcome to the forth KET4CleanProduction Newsletter, an edition focusing on Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) and cooperation opportunities among Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and KET Technology Centres.
The EU-funded project KET4CleanProduction aims to help SMEs tackle their clean production challenges while being innovative, competitive and sustainable. By encouraging the use of advanced manufacturing technologies and related key enabling technologies, the production processes are expected to upgrade towards a more energy and material efficient state.

Di-Plast: Open call for industrial pilots

The use of recycled plastic material (rPM) is far behind its potential. The project Di-Plast aims to increase the uptake of rPM by making use of software-based tools. 


Di-Plast develops and implements digital tools to increase information transparency in the value chain and to support converters in purchasing and processing rPM.

Companies wishing to increase the amount of recycled materials in their processes and improve the quality in process and product by using digital tools can now participate in one of the 4 pilots of the research project Di-Plast. 


There are no costs for participating in the pilots. The application period runs until 15 December 2019.

KET4CleanProduction invites research and technology organisations to register as qualified KET TCs

Our ambition is to establish a growing open innovation ecosystem among KETs Technology Centres (KET TCs) and SMEs. As of August 2019, our network is scaling up, adding further organisations that carry out applied research and innovation in key enabling technologies. Interested research and technology organisations that fulfil the criteria for a KET TC can already register on for free and offer their services to SME as of 08/2019 within the micro grant funding scheme. For a detailed guide on how to apply for the mapping see here
