AIMPLAS is a private technology center, created in 1990 to support companies in the Plastics sector. Recognized by the Government of Spain as an Innovation and Technology Center (RD 2093/2008) with the number RCT-0212-0272. Its headquarters are located in València Parc Tecnològic (Paterna, València). AIMPLAS is an active member of EARTO (European Association of Research and Technology Organizations), of the Spanish Federation of Technology Centers (FEDIT) and of the Network of Technological Institutes of the Valencian Community (REDIT). Likewise, it is an active member of almost 100 associations, networks, technological platforms, alliances and clusters that provide the vision of administration, industry and society.

AIMPLAS offers solutions (analysis-tests, R&D&I projects, training, technical advice and technological information) to companies covering the entire value chain, from raw material manufacturers to transformers, end users and recyclers.

AIMPLAS has a strong commitment to the environment, making the circular economy the axis of all its activities.
