EuPC Surveys on the Use of rPM by Plastics Converters




The European plastics industry is facing numerous challenges regarding the transition towards a circular economy. The recycling of plastics waste and the use of recycled plastics materials (rPM) are becoming increasingly critical for the succes of the plastics industry. Especially plastics converting companies have to play their part to ensure that rPM are being used as raw material for the creation of new products. Without a strong market for rPM, recycling targets are destined to fail and the transition towards a more sustainable plastics industry would come to a halt.


In the light of these developments, the European Plastics Converters Association (EuPC) decided to launch a series of European surveys on the current and future use of rPM in Europe’s plastics converting industry. The goal of these surveys is to get more information about the current usage of rPM in the industry and to find out more about the challenges that converting companies are facing regarding the use of rPM. The EU Plastics Strategy makes it imperative to gain more knowledge about the use of rPM in the European plastics converting industry to support converting companies in the transition towards a more circular economy
