The plastics recycling industry is a complex, dynamic segment with a varied supply stream and value chain. With prices of recyclate intrinsically linked to the price of virgin resin, demand and the financial viability of the process is often subject to fluctuations in raw material prices.
Developments in mechanical recycling technology are changing the shape of the plastics recycling industry and increasing the ability to recover more plastics in a closed-loop, helping to retain maximum value. New opportunities are available for those who wish to take advantage of this changing and developing industry.
AMI Consulting is preparing an authoritative new report giving a global overview of the mechanical recycling market, with a detailed focus on the European industry.
The study looks at the global flows of plastic waste and recyclate, to enable an analysis of the supply and demand balance, along with an evaluation of current capacity in Europe. With this in mind, the report seeks to evaluate the implications of the new Chinese recycling rules on the European recycling industry along with European legislation.
