The investment that the EU is making in the circular economy is on such a scale that it’s vital to communicate what that means for the environment, citizens, businesses and cities across the continent

 

Synergies

Illustrated%20Waves_edited.jpg

The plastics industry is undergoing a profound transformation to achieve a circular economy in Europe.

The efforts are mainly focused on:

The members of the Plastic Circularity Multiplier initiative have organized a joint conference in October 2020 to communicate the contribution of their projects according to these five categories.

1

Design for recycling

2

Collection and sorting

3

Recycled content

4

R&D and investments

5

Monitoring

More collaboration activities will be set up according to the synergies between projects.

The members of the Plastics Circularity Multiplier Initiative have developed a complete database to find the projects with the same needs for each of the following criteria:
