The European strategy for plastics in a circular economy lays the foundations for a new economy of this fraction, identifying specific objectives, including that of ensuring by 2030 the full recyclability of all packaging placed on the market as well as the recycling of more than half of plastic waste. Furthermore, the new European dispositions, transposed into national law, establish increases in the recycling targets for various types of waste, including municipal and packaging waste, combined with targets established by the single use directive.
The various regulatory provisions, finalized to increase collection and recycling of each typology of waste, highlight the importance of the developing of the management systems order to maximize recycling capacity.
The National Strategy on the Circular Economy, an enabling reform of the PNRR, provides for the definition of a national strategy on plastics in order to guarantee an effective path of technological innovation. The day is an opportunity to take stock of the measures implemented and the technological possibilities available.
