The plastics recycling industry has prepared a ‘wish list’ for the rapid transition to manufacturing Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastics from complex wastes of durable products such as cars and electronics.
Whilst the technology is readily available to create PCR plastics, legal initiatives and thresholds for particular substances changes continuously.
The recycling industry is therefore calling for ‘realistic thresholds’ for substances of concern and for a continuous exchange of views between the legislator and the recycling industry if changes are planned, enabling the further development of the Circular Economy for PCR plastics in Europe.
Key members of the recycling sector have compiled a ‘wish list’ of principles that are requested to be included in any new set of measures and legislative instruments set up to help deliver a true circular economy.
The wish list includes public green procurement rules to enforce a change towards products that contain well-defined quantities of PCR content; and reward-based incentives in the private sector, designed to drive member states to implement positive, reward-based drivers to make product manufacturers specify and use PCR plastics.
