Innovate UK are looking for innovative companies and organisations that have the capabilities to recycle and repurpose large quantities of PPE gowns, goggles, visors and hand sanitiser into new products that can further benefit society and net zero goals

This is a great opportunity to collaborate with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and Innovate UK KTN.

DHSC are looking for organisations that might be able to use, process or repurpose unused PPE currently in the form of eye and face protection, contained within various sites across the UK.

Companies with ideas, processes or solutions for modifying the use of component materials in their existing form or modification into new products that could have further application or use are sought within this challenge. This includes, but is not limited to, the deconstruction, mechanical or chemical recycling of the products and their associated packaging, creating new compounds/materials that may be of benefit as a material feedstock within the applicant company or to other manufacturers.

Indicative products include eye goggles with a PVC frame and Polypropylene Copolymer screen, and face protectors with a Polypropylene Copolymer Block headband and Acetate visor.
