How are supply chains responding to meet commitments on recyclable packaging by 2030 ?

 

Innovations in plastics recycling technologies and solutions to transform the recycling landscape
 

Under the European Commission's plans, by 2030 all plastic packaging in the EU market would need to be recyclable. Single-use plastic use would also be reduced.

 

One key aspect of the law relates to Extended Producer Responsibility schemes, which oblige manufacturers to pay a fee covering the cost of collection, transport and management of waste.

 

How can the industry come together to make EPR economics work  ? What can the EU countries learn from each other ?

 

The UK Plastics Pact launched by WRAP  has set a 70% target for effective recycling or composting of plastics packaging with a view to achieving an average of 30% recycled content across all plastic packaging. If these aspirations are to be achieved, then around 500,000 tonnes of additional reprocessing capacity will need to be identified either in the UK or abroad.

 

Are current recycling infrastructure and sorting technologies equipped to meet the higher ambitions ? to  achieve recycling goals, the industry  first has to work on increasing recovery.

 

What game-changing solutions are there that can leverage technology to drive more people to recycle the right way ?  Is chemical recycling the answer ?

 

Some EU countries are moving ahead with waste-derived fuels. However, some argue that plastics to fuels  would seem to violate the Commission's rules on what counts as recycled waste . Supporters are pushing for plastic-derived fuels to count toward national binding targets for the share of renewable energy to be used in the transport sector as this technology has the potential to decarbonize transport, especially in aviation, where no renewable alternatives exist.

 

At RecyclePLAST for the Circular Economy, CMT has put together an authoritative panel from plastic resin producers, packaging companies to recyclers to share recent developments on Plastics Recycling moving forward.

Highlights: 

  • Improving Markets for Recycled Plastics - Trends, Prospects and Policy Responses
  • The Polyolefin Circular Economy Platform  (PCEP) iniatives in driving forward Europe’s polyolefins recycling
  • Development of post-consumer polyolefin recyclates and new products in the area of circular polyolefins 
  • For recycling to be successful, brand owners must commit to designing products and packaging that are recyclable as well as to consuming recycled materials in the manufacturing of their product. Hear from Wehler a sustainable design furniture brand how it is using ocean plastics to produce  furniture
  • CEFLEX’s progress towards developing a circular economy for flexible packaging
  • Closing the loop for Plastic IT Electronic Products and ink cartridges – Hewlett Packard’s perspective
  • Multilayer & mixed plastic recycling technology update
  • Recycling polystyrene
  • Converting hard- to- recycle  plastics into fuels & plastics
  • Sharing of good practices & plastic recycling initiatives across Europe – covering Spain, UK , Norway
  • Leading thermoform producer -   KP’s Positive Plastic Pledge on how to build a sustainable future using  the valuable benefits of plastics responsibly
  • Evolving Extended Producers Responsibility -making the economics  work for the future

European Commission forms Alliance to Tackle Plastics Waste Problem

Posted on : 21 Dec, 2018

 
European Commission has formed an alliance with key industry stakeholders from the plastics value chain such as  waste collectors, recyclers, primary producers, converters, brand owners and retailers - including stakeholders from the packaging, construction and automotive sectors. The new alliance is expected to enable EC in achieving the European Plastics Strategy objective that aims use 10 million tonnes of recycled plastics in new products in the EU market by 2025.
 
The aims of the alliance is to tackle the huge problem of plastic waste and encourage recycling while also improving the economics and quality of plastics recycling in Europe.
 
The three major objectives that the alliance aims to achieve are:
- Fostering short-term, voluntary and coordinated actions and investments by key industry stakeholders. Such actions and investments, said the EC, could cover separate collection of plastic waste; harmonised reporting on collection and recycling rates and volumes; investments in sorting and recycling facilities; voluntary standards on the 'design for recycling' of plastic products and others.
 
- Reporting on the obstacles which may hamper stakeholders' efforts to fully deliver on their pledges and to reach the target set for 2025. Some of those obstacles already identified include lack of infrastructure, insufficient access to finance and standardisation gaps.
 
- Monitoring progress made towards more plastics recycling and more uptake of recycled plastics in Europe. The monitoring, according to EC, should help identify the gaps in the supply and demand for different recycled plastics. In parallel, new voluntary commitments will be encouraged.
 
The alliance believes that close cooperation in the plastics value chain is key to achieve a true circular plastics economy in Europe.
