The stakeholders in PLASTIX collaborate to contribute to a green future for Europe. The EU-funded project collaborates with regions that want to reduce plastic waste, increase recycling and replace plastic with renewable materials to reduce the climate impact and harmful microplastics.
The project follows the EU’s vision of a circular economy, where plastics are used in a smart and sustainable way. The project involves several stakeholders in the value chain who have the potential to influence the use of plastics – from researchers and producers to end users and recyclers.
The European regions are facing similar plastics challenges: consumption of huge amount of plastics, their recyclability, reusability and replaceability with bio-based raw materials, as well as microplastics are issues that need to be solved.
In PLASTIX, we share good examples and new ideas between regions so that policy and other regional decision-makers can better support the transition to a circular economy.
The aim is to help regions move quickly and efficiently to a society where the use of plastics is sustainable.
