A report by PlasticsEurope

The newly published report »The Circular Economy for Plastics – A European Overview« by PlasticsEurope draws from a larger study on the Plastics Circular Economy 2018 in EU28+2 countries. It aims to be one of the several studies, surveys and analyses which looks in more detail at the different steps of the life cycle of plastics. Studies like these contribute to establish a European baseline of knowledge about plastic waste and a better understanding of the circular economy of plastics.

This report provides a European overview of plastics production, conversion into parts and products, waste collection and treatment, including recycling. It also addresses the production of recyclates and their use in different applications.
