European Plastics Converters (EuPC, Brussels / Belgium; www.plasticsconverters.eu) has announced that its online tool “MOnitoring Recyclates for Europe” (MORE) is now available for use by plastics converting companies in the UK. The EuPC signed a partnership agreement with the British Plastics Federation (BPF, London / UK; www.bpf.co.uk) on 11 November 2019, allowing British plastics converters visiting the MORE website to register and enter the volume of recycled polymers added to their new products. The EuPC said submitted data is kept confidential and only aggregated numbers are published.

The UK is the 13th country in the EU to offer access to EuPC’s MORE platform, a unified online platform supporting the first Europe-wide plastics strategy devised by the European Commission – see Plasteurope.com of 19.01.2018 and 26.04.2019 – with the aim that 10m t/y of recycled polymers are used in new products sold on the EU market between 2025-2030. The European plastics industry currently reuses approximately 5m t of recycled plastics annually.

Further development of the platform is planned through 2022. The implementation modules are designed to create a dedicated area to monitor the volumes of recycled plastics, integrate supplementary criteria related to EU regulatory requirements and include additional recyclate types as well as review corresponding markets and applications.
