Challenges of plastics & single-use legislation - SPE 20

Tuesday, 21 January 2020

12:05 o'clock - 12:25 o'clock

Luzern, Switzerland

The presentation will elaborate on recent legislative initiatives of the European Commission with regard to plastics materials and single-use items and how they impact on the packaging sector. This keynote is part of the Innovation Symposium of Swiss Plastics Expo 20.

The provisions of the Circular Economy Package on waste and packaging legislation, the EU Plastics Strategy as well as the recently (and very quickly) established Single-use Plastics Directive have an immense impact on the packaging sector across the EU and beyond. The push for mechanical recyclability and the consequential use of recyclates is a step to move towards circularity. However, other - also circular pathways - such as better functionality and alternative - low carbon - feedstock use need to be considered as well. The presentation will analyze some of the challenges of the present legislative dossiers and will suggest integrated development pathways.
