Title: Product Passport through Twinning of Circular Value Chains
Funded under: Horizon 2022 (visit Cordis page)
Overall budget: € 7 652 750
Role of TUC indigo team
TUC will be the work package leader of digital circular value chain framework .TUC leads Task 1.2 with the support of pilot
partners. Technological/research partners will support the definition of the reference framework by understanding the
underlying ICT needs in the pilot scenarios
Plooto aims to deliver a Circular and Resilient Information System (CRIS) to support manufacturers in their green, digital and circular transition. CRIS enables waste reduction and end-to-end traceability of Secondary Raw Materials (SRM) through interconnected digital services for real-time decision making, monitoring and certification of materials and products.
To achieve the target Plooto delivers:
a) a transformation framework based on traceability strategies for materials/products per business case, with reference processes for SRM use from waste deposit to new products, and governance models for circular value chains;
b) ICT tools for modelling product, production processes and supply chains, as an aggregation of individual component Digital Twins with cognition capabilities (cognitive Digital Twins – CDTs);
c) Data will feed RM-recovery and waste dataspaces allowing the provision of material certification and product passport; and
d) A circular sustainability balanced scorecard (framework+toolkit) to assess impact of decision-making at CDT level based on various KPIs.
The solution will be piloted in three different circular supply chains demonstrating waste reduction, reusability of scrap and production by-products, operational improvement.
