Packaging Recycling and the Extended Producer Responsibility Experience in Europe
7 March @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The AFGC is moving quickly on the development of the National Plastics Recycling Scheme (NPRS) project, a recycling scheme for soft plastic packaging supported by the food and grocery manufacturing industry.
With the design of a soft plastic packaging recycling scheme for Australian food and grocery manufacturers in the packaging space now under way, the experience of packaging and packaging waste recovery in the EU offers valuable insights for Australian businesses. Thomas De Meester from Fostplus in Belgium and Joris van der Neulen from Nedvang in Netherlands will speak on:
- How the Netherlands & Belgium have achieved record recycling rates and 100% control of their product stewardship scheme
- How FostPlus works with a federation of states
- How FostPlus & Nedvang negotiated with Councils to now collect all plastic packaging types including flexibles. BlueBag expansion
- How EPR funded new expanded collection & recycling innovations.
