A. Preparatory actions: detailed inventory of the waste fractions per type of flight, analysis of potential re-use and waste minimisation opportunities; consultations with key stakeholders and design of the recycling process. Current practices (processes, flows and fractions) will be modeled in an LCA software.
B. Implementation actions: training of crew and staff, implementation of equipment adjustments for the new recycling process. The performance of the recollection and separation protocol. The implementation of a pilot treatment for category 1 waste and partial replication of the experience at Heathrow Airport.
C. Monitoring of Technical and Environmental Progress: technical monitoring of performance indicators (also LCA) will be carried out. At the end of the project, we will conclude by drawing conclusions and recommendations of the actions developed.
D. Public awareness and dissemination of results: sensitization in order to engage not only the passengers on board but also the professional stakeholders at national and EU level. Networking with other LIFE projects will also take place. Publications will be delivered through scientific journals and congresses.
