Furthermore historical data is used to project levels of POM and recycling to 2025 and an analysis has been undertaken of the probability of the UK achieving national and European recycling targets up to 2025, if ‘business as usual’ is assumed, i.e. without considering the impacts of elements such as the introduction of a Deposit Return Scheme (DRS), PRN reform and the David Attenborough effect.
The report also outlines the industries and
products that UK recycled polymer is used in.
The Valpak project team worked with Verde
Consulting & Research and RECOUP on this
project and benefitted from the support of a
plastics industry Steering Group.
