Recycling report published by PlasticsEurope


PlasticsEurope has unveiled the results of the first-ever study on polyolefins recycling and recovery rates in rigid applications in Europe.
The research analyses recycling and recovery figures for France, Germany, Poland, Spain and the UK. It focuses on bottles, other rigid packaging, automotive and appliance and electronic sectors, and reveals that 57% of rigid polyolefins were recovered in 2009.
Out of these, one million tonnes of waste was recycled and PlasticsEurope insists that this is only a fraction of what can be achieved.
According to PlasticsEurope, key factors to achieve high recycling and recovery rates include restrictions on landfill, the development of broader collection schemes for non-bottle rigid packaging and optimised sorting systems, coupled with efficient energy recovery capacities to complement quality recycling.
Polyolefins (PP, HDPE, LDPE and LLDPE) account for 48% of Western Europe’s annual consumption of plastics.
