A NEW PROJECT FOR THE DIVERSIFICATION OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL CONTRIBUTION FOR PLASTIC PACKAGING
CONAI announces the launch of the Environmental Contribution diversification project for plastic packaging. A fundamental step, since 18 years since the establishment of the Consortium, who sees the overcoming of the unique Environmental Contribution for the same packing material, rewarding the efforts of companies for the eco-designed packaging with environmental and sustainable features.
The new Environmental Contribution will be modulated on the basis of three criteria: easy selection after the collection, recycling capability – assessed on the basis of available industrial technologies – and the target circuit (domestic or trade / industry).
To get to this important milestone were analyzed about 60 types of plastic packaging, and then classified into three categories to which correspond different values of the Environmental Contribution: will enjoy lower charges the easier to recycle packaging and will pay higher charges the “difficult” to recycle packages.
The implementation of the project will accrue presumably within 12 months after the necessary testing period for the companies.
