The European Union has ambitious goals: zero plastics to landfill by 2025. All materials have to be returned to the cycle of reusability. This is one of many goals of the “Circular Economy Package” that the European Commission decided at the end of 2015.
To achieve this goal, all stakeholders have to act together. Therefore, the Association of European Plastics Converters (EuPC), the Association of European Plastics Manufacturers (PlasticsEurope) and the Association of European Plastics Recyclers (PRE) have passed a common position paper. In this paper, they acknowledge the ambitious goals of the European Union, but they also indicate what the politics has to do from their point of view. For example, some goals have to be formulated more clearly and consistent standards have to be established within the EU.
