In an article published on January 25, 2018, news provider Plasteurope.com informed that the European Plastics Converters Association (EuPC) has launched a second survey on the use of recycled plastic materials (rPM) in Europe. The survey is open until May 2018, available in seven languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Turkish, and Polish), and addresses all plastic converters operating in Europe. It is based on the findings of the first survey that was conducted in 2017 (FPF reported) and showed that the quality of recyclates was the main barrier for converters to using more rPM (FPF reported).
“The second edition of our European rPM survey will enable us to further identify and specify the quality and supply issues we are facing, help us to find appropriate solutions for the future, and demonstrate our commitment to a more sustainable plastics economy,” stated Alexandre Dangis, managing director at EuPC. The results of the second survey will be presented at EuPC’s annual meeting on May 24-25, 2018 in Milan, Italy.
