Plastics Recyclers in Europe

Formats available:

The recycling industry is a dynamic segment with a complex value chain. Developments in mechanical and chemical recycling technology are changing the shape of the plastics industry as we know it. Within the European Commission’s 2030 vision, all plastic packaging being placed on the market will be reusable or easily recycled. In order to meet the ambitious target of 55% of plastic packaging to be recycled, the EC envisages sorting and recycling capacity to have quadrupled by 2030. Consequently, the improved separation and investment in innovation, skills and capacity will result in the export of poorly sorted plastic waste being phased out. In tandem with the expansion of capacity, the demand for recycled plastic is expected to have grown four-fold.

Plastics Recyclers in Europe can help you navigate through the industry and understand recycling capabilities and where they are located. The recycling databases  are a practical tool to identify potential acquisition targets and facilitate competitive landscape review.

This is our best-selling database and proven high value to our customers in this dynamic sector.
