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.
