Implementation of Supportive Initiatives by Various Governments Regarding Recyclable Plastic Drives the Demand for Europe Recycled Plastic Market

Recycled plastic refers to materials that have undergone a process of transformation, where waste plastic is collected, sorted, cleaned, and processed into new usable products. It involves breaking down the plastic into small pieces, melting them, and reshaping them into various forms, such as bottles, containers, or fibers. This recycling process helps divert plastic waste from landfills, conserves natural resources, and reduces the need for virgin plastic production.

Key Findings of the Study

Europe Recycled Plastic Market

Rising Demand for Sustainable Packaging

Packaging plays an important role as plastic packaging in food packaging, which protects foods against environmental, chemical, and physical factors that could contaminate all of the food if not packaged correctly. The essential role of packaging is to protect the product from damage during transit, but packaging also protects the product in the warehouse and retail shoes before the sale of the product. Different types of packaging are used for different types of products. The demand for eco-friendly products for packaging is increasing because eco-friendly products have low-cost production and can be reused and recycled, which lowers the production of waste in the region. For packaging, several manufacturers prefer recycled plastic packaging more as packaging processes are less energy-consuming. In addition to that, they are said to emit minimal carbon as well they help in the reduction of plastic waste. In conclusion, recycled plastic are low energy consuming and easy to manufacture compared to synthetic plastics, which also helps in maintaining the ecological balance as it helps reduce plastic waste faster and contributes to less carbon emission. So, the manufacturers prefer recycled plastics for the packaging of food and beverage products. Hence, the increase in the preference for sustainable plastic packaging is expected to drive market growth.

Europe Recycled Plastic Market

Market Development

  • On October 31, 2022, according to the Tomorrow’s World Today, CRDC Europe, supported by the alliance to end plastic waste, announced the opening of a factory that can recycle hard-to-recycle plastic waste into a concrete additive called RESIN8. The factory uses a proprietary process that is efficient in the transformation of plastic waste into RESIN8 at the rate of approximately one ton of plastic per hour. RESIN8 is found to be increasing the integrity of asphalt and concrete. The material is further used to build housing projects and has better insulation properties than traditional concrete
  • On October 18, 2022, According to Packaging 360, The collaboration between TotalEnergies Corbion and TOMRA Recycling showed the effectiveness of sorting polylactic acid from municipal mixed plastic waste. They sorted the waste using the Near Infra-Red (NIR) sorting technology. The sorting test demonstrated there were no PLA trays mixing with other types of plastics. It was also found that it did not contaminate the other waste stream having PET bottles
  • On August 19, 2022, according to Gardner Business Media, Inc., Zen Robotics which is specialized in artificial intelligence robotic sorting machines, was acquired by Terex Material Processing. The machines of Zen Robotics autonomously pick and sort waste using AI, 3D sensors, and cameras. Zen Robotics' Fast Picker is designed for processing municipal waste, and the heavy picker is designed to handle industrial waste and bulky construction
  • On August 11, 2020, according to Unilever, Magnum, an ice cream brand, launched new tubs which are made from recycled polypropylene plastic in a way to reduce plastic waste. The tubs and lids are fully recyclable and are made from polypropylene. The move was made by Unilever as part to reduce the usage of virgin plastic and increase the usage of recycled plastic by the year 2025.
