PRE & VinylPlus undertake actions in order to raise the awareness about the PVC plastics recycling and to challenge a more efficient control and usage of PVC during the whole life cycle of the material. Their aim is as well to influence an increase in collection rates and therefore recycling.

The organisers of the PRS Europe event, Crain Communications Ltd and the Plastics Recyclers Europe Association would like to make the following statement.

 

The demand for recycled plastics has not been negatively affected due to low oil prices. Some media claim that the plastics recycling market is affected by a decrease in the oil price. However, this situation does not reflect the general situation of European plastics recyclers, only certain companies who are exposed to exports of plastics.
