PLASTICS RECYCLING
EuPC launches survey on the use of recycled plastics materials in Europe / Poll closes end of September
In the light of the latest developments in the field of the EU circular economy and the approaching European strategy on plastics, the European Plastics Converters Association (EuPC, Brussels / Belgium; www.eupc.org) has launched a survey on the current and future use of recycled plastics materials (RPM) by Europeís converters. "Our survey on the use of RPM in the plastics converting industry will enable EuPC to identify the difficulties we are facing as an industry and help to find solutions for the future," said the associationís managing director, Alexandre Dangis. The survey is open until the end of September to all converters that operate in Europe. It is available online in eight languages: English; French; German; Italian; Spanish; Polish; Turkish; and Bulgarian.

The importance of recycling was also addressed during the two-day conference "A circular future with Plastics", that EuPC organised together with the Spanish plastics asociation ANAIP (Madrid; www.anaip.es) earlier this June in Madrid / Spain Ė see Plasteurope.com of 09.06.2017.

EuPC plans to publish the results during October 2017. Dangis said the potential of the plastics converting sector is essential if the regionís ambitious recycling targets are to be met, especially as converting companies form by far the biggest part of the European plastics industry. The association added that the poll is part of a larger initiative to get deeper insights into the challenges facing converters regarding the use of RPM.

Additional surveys are expected to follow in 2018.
