The 7th Environment Action Programme is going in the right direction to push plastics recycling according to Plastics Recyclers Europe.
Ton Emans, EuPR President, said that “the targets set by this new EAP to 2020 will trigger the right conditions to boost plastics recycling in Europe. This will enable improved resource efficiency, allow sustainable economic growth and create green jobs”.
“Given the fact that our resources are limited, we cannot afford to continue the irresponsible practice of sending half of our plastics waste to landfills. The vision of Commissioner Potočnik is the right way to gofor Europe. Energy from waste should also be limited to non - recyclables to further push circular material flows” - Ton Emans, President, the European Plastics Recyclers (EuPR).
