The European plastics waste generation nearly reached 25 million tonnes in 2008. Even though 51% of this amount has been recovered more effort is needed in order to fully use the potential laying in plastics waste.
The recycling of post-consumer plastics waste is a challenging and multifaceted topic, for which many solutions exist such as mechanical recycling. Therefore, The European Plastics Recyclers (EuPR) trade association has published a strategy paper entitled "How to Increase Plastics Recycling".
EuPR represents National Associations and Individual Member Companies covering 80% of the European market. The organisation focuses on the promotion of plastics recycling and the creation of conditions which enable profitable and sustainable business.
