Strategy on plastics in a Circular Economy - EuRIC position

03 July 2017

EuRIC welcomes the introduction of the roadmap laying down the European Commission’s “Strategy on plastics in a circular economy” (‘the communication’).  As outlined in ‘the communication’, plastics is an important material for the economy, and the next great challenge will be to decouple its production from fossil feedstocks. To achieve such an objective, plastic recycling is the only solution, but it faces a number of obstacles that different policy actions must alleviate.
