EuCIA co-signs the Circular Plastics Alliance Declaration

08 OCT 2019

On 20 September 2019, the Circular Plastics Alliance presented and adopted its declaration in Brussels.

The vision of the Circular Plastics Alliance is to deliver on the circular economy for plastics and substantially increase the use of recycled plastics into new products. The Circular Plastics Alliance endorses the ambitious target that by 2025 at least 10 million tonnes of recycled plastics should find their way into products and packaging in Europe each year, helping to deliver the circular economy with a life cycle approach.

As the association defending the composites industry, also known as the fiber reinforced plastics industry in Europe, we fully support this initiative. Roberto Frassine, President of EuCIA, together with 100 signatories, private and public stakeholders involved in the plastics value chains, have joined together in the Circular Plastics Alliance, supported by the European Commission in the context of the European Plastics Strategy, to promote the use of more recycled plastics in Europe through voluntary action.

EuCIA is fully involved in the circular economy running two major projects one related to the life cycle analyses of composites parts (http://ecocalculatoreucia.eu) and the second one identifying the recycling routes for the recycling of composites and helping the industry to better understand the end of use of their products.
