Increased plastics recycling is an absolute necessity to reduce natural resource depletion.
Plastics recycling is a powerful mean for fighting marine and land pollution.
If plastics are not recycled and disposed of in a proper way they will be sent to incineration plants, or in the worst case, discarded in the natural environment where they end up contributing to land and marine pollution. Increased recycling will lead to a decrease in oil consumption and green-house gas emissions, as well as a reduction in the use of valuable natural resources.
Plastics Recyclers Europe published a paper identifying the prerequisites for increasing recycling of flexible polyethylene into a high-quality raw material while ensuring a sustainable and cost-effective process.
