On 20 September 2019 in Brussels, the Circular Plastics Alliance will present and adopt its declaration. The declaration will describe the alliance’s vision for more recycled plastics in Europe, as well as their commitments for action to reach the EU target, Namely, that 10 million tonnes of recycled plastics find their way in products in the EU by 2025. EXPRA President and Managing Director will participate and sepak at the event.
The European Commission announced the launch of the Circular Plastics Alliance on 11 December 2018 with the support of First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and Vice-President Jyrki Katainen.
The launch of the Alliance followed the preliminary assessment of pledges (November 2018). This assessment showed that pledges from suppliers of recycled plastics were sufficient to reach and even exceed the EU target of 10 million tonnes of recycled plastics used in Europe by 2025. But pledges received from users of recycled plastics (such as plastics converters and manufacturers) were not sufficient, and action was necessary to bridge the gap between the supply and demand.
