The Recycling Projects Accelerator
The Plastic Odyssey LAB is a unique acceleration program for entrepreneurs who want to launch a social enterprise in plastic recycling. It includes technical support, but also several training sessions on social entrepreneurship.
The aim of this support is to develop the plastic recycling solutions of tomorrow.
The PO Lab program relies on an international network of technical experts and allows each entrepreneur to prototype their objects directly on board thanks to the onboard recycling workshop. This 200 m2 space is composed of 9 plastic recycling machines including a washing tank, a shredder, a compactor, an extruder, a press and a plate furnace. The entire recycling chain is available to entrepreneurs so that they can carry out their recycling projects under real conditions.
Entrepreneurial mentoring for the selected projects of this first POLab session is provided by the Crédit Agricole Group, through its Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation and several of its Regional Banks.
