RESCOLL develops sustainable substrates for signage

Rescoll’Blog / 26 mai 2023

On the 9th of May, RESCOLL hosted a consortium meeting of the SMILING European project.

Rescoll is working on this project with two Spanish companies: Implaser and Tekniker. SMILING project aims to develop sustainable photoluminescent signs (Sustainable luMinescent signalING).

In the SMILING project, Rescoll is developing a new kind of substrate to replace fossil-based substrates currently used in such applications. Implaser is working with Tekniker to recycle traffic signs, but also on producing sustainable inks.

This study, financed by the Eurostars program made it possible to obtain extruded sheets with a bio-based part in the substrate. By using materials containing bio-based parts, eco-friendly signs would replace fossil-based elements, having a positive impact on environment by using less hazardous resources, but would also encourage suppliers to make changes towards a virtuous production.

This project has received funding from the Eurostars-3 joint programme, supported by BPI France.
