How is sustainability achieved in the plastics supply chain?

Construction, automotive, real estate, medical, food, sports, education…. Almost all industrial sectors rely on plastics to enable their development and do business. However, this use must be based on the circular economy, i.e., less dependence on virgin materials and thus greater recyclability. To achieve this, it is imperative that the entire supply chain of the plastics industry remains involved, from manufacturing and design to end-of-life management

What is upstream innovation and why is it essential for the circular economy?

In a circular economy that seeks, as its ultimate goal, to achieve a world without waste, in which products have a second life, upstream innovation is one of the most promising ways to achieve it. It involves tracing a problem to its origin and tackling it there. In other words: instead of figuring out how to deal with large amounts of waste, why not prevent it from being generated in the first place.

Plastic transformers, a growing industry

Plastic products can be found in virtually all industries. This is due to their characteristics: adaptability, durability, and light weight, which make them a favourite in the construction, packaging, and automotive industries. This sector contributes to the process of innovation, promoting resource efficiency and, at the same time, creating jobs….


¿Sabes qué recorrido sigue un envase desde que se deposita en el contenedor hasta que se #recicla?

💡Una pista: el papel de los #recicladores es ... clave. En España hay alrededor de 420 homologados.

♻️Te contamos este proceso en #BeyondRecycling ➡️

🚮La humanidad es capaz de generar más de 11.000 millones de toneladas de #residuos al año.

♻️Por ello, no hay que olvidar la importancia que... tiene que cada persona ponga su granito de arena en favor del #reciclaje, tratando de corregir algunos errores 👉

Hacia el #reciclaje y la #economíacircular➡️En 2023 entran en vigor los preceptos de la Directiva que prohíbe comercializar ciertos #plásticos ... de un solo uso

🟢Los fabricantes tendrán que informar del impacto #medioambiental de sus productos 👉
