39. Circularity in action: Plastic packaging waste, a 360° approach on collecting, sorting and recycling

Plastic packaging, many benefits but also many reasons to blame it…

You can also try to manage it.

Fost Plus, the Belgian PRO, will set up a new nationwide collection scheme: door-to-door collection of all plastic packaging waste, via the new blue bag for PMD (plastic and metal packaging § drinkcartons). The objective is clear, yet very ambitious: offering maximum high quality recycling solutions for all types of plastic packaging waste.

In our workshop we will share our experience and insights on 4 key-aspects (design for recycling, performant sorting centres, high quality recycling, design from recycling) that are quintessential for the success of this circular material model, based on barriers, challenges and solutions.
