Structure

Plastics Recyclers Europe consists of several Working Groups. Working Groups were established to represent particular interest groups - depending on the type of the polymer or type of waste processed. These are so called vertical groups. There are also 3 horizontal groups which interact and cooperate with the vertical groups. Their aim is as well to strengthen the Plastics Recyclers Europe’s structure and allow for communication between all of the groups.

PRE Management Committee constitutes 10 members.

Even very low quantities of degradable plastics that end up in the traditional plastic waste streams have a significant, negative impact on recycled plastics.

The average yield of the PET recyclers has decreased from 73% to 68% since 2011. This 5 points decrease has led to substantial and additional cost for the European PET recyclers. Additionally, recyclers are obliged to discard more material in order to achieve good quality of recycled PET.
