The SMEP Plastics Fund has a total budget of up to £5 million over 3 years. They are seeking calls for concepts for research and development projects that have the potential to bring new solutions into the plastics value chain upstream of the end-of-life solutions.

Ideally, these should be well-positioned to be taken up at scale by industry in the region.

Interventions should meet the following overarching objectives:

Concept interventions should show potential to significantly reduce plastics waste in the environment by introducing new innovative solutions within the plastics value chain.
The solutions envisaged include upstream interventions, which address the plastics pollution challenge at source through material substitution and design; manufacturing improvements; and repurposing of plastics articles after their first use phase, as well as reuse systems.
Solutions should have a strong potential for market uptake and scaling.
To gain market traction, solutions should be technically and economically viable to implement.
Solutions should be designed to progress rapidly through technology readiness levels and overcome technical and other barriers to entry (e.g., regulatory; value chain integration; market perception; or other).
Proposed solutions must be suitable for the SMEP priority countries or show that they can be implemented at scale in these geographies

What the fund will achieve?

This Plastics Fund under SMEP aims to improve pollution levels, human health, and the environment through achieving a reduction in plastic pollution in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
The Fund aims to advance solutions to reduce the incidence of one-way, disposable plastic articles, which are poorly conceived and therefore prone to ending up as litter.
