The transition towards a circular economy: the case for plastics waste

Confrontations Europe

The seminar “The transition towards a circular economy: the case for plastics waste” took place on the 10th of February.

Less than 25% of collected plastic waste is recycled and about 50% goes to landfill. Large quantities of plastics also end up in the oceans. Following its Action plan for the Circular Economy ‘Closing the loop’ (2015), the European Commission is to adopt a strategy on plastics by 2017. The objective of the seminar was to investigate together with stakeholders the main challenges this Strategy should tackle.
