Plastics recycling will continue to grow; it was confirmed during this year EuPR Annual Meeting, which took place on 21st and 22nd of November in Brussels. The event was devoted to the subject of: “Resource Efficiency for Plastics.” It has turned out to be a great success with more than 160 guests attending. During this event EuPR has unveiled its new corporate identity. This new image stands for positive changes in the European plastics recycling industry. The new name Plastics Recyclers Europe, as well as, the new website are to emphasize the transformations that the plastics recycling industry is currently undergoing – its development, improvement and growth to serve the plastics industry on its way to sustainability.

The panel of conferences, moderated by Alexandre Dangis, on “Resource Efficiency for Plastics” and the debate were concerned mainly with the issue of boosting plastics recycling as well as improvement of current waste management systems. EuPR has revealed, as well, its priorities and objectives for the future in an updated Strategy Paper. Plastic Recyclers Europe main objective is to increase recycling targets. Their aim is to introduce an eco-design for plastics products to make recycling more efficient and more accessible. Additionally, they are emphasizing the need to stop landfilling of waste which could be destined for reuse and recycling.

Ton Emans, EuPR president, said: ‘We should push plastics recycling for higher targets in order to improve Europe’s efficiency and in order to better manage our own resources. ’

2012 has been difficult and at the same time fruitful in achievements for the Plastics Recyclers Europe.  EuPR successfully launched the EuCertPlast accreditation and made prominent progress within the End of Waste Criteria; the tools will be now ready to help Member States in Europe to create jobs in Plastics Recycling.

Need Any Pallet Boxes???

 Plastic has replaced wood in many situations and circumstances in our modern age. No better example of this trend can been witnessed first hand within the continental fruit business. Mediterranean countries rely and have invested significantly in improving efficiently in their logistics operations and produce handling by replacing all wooden Pallet Boxes with INJECTION MOLDED LARGE plastic boxes. This has significantly reduced packaging waste reducing environmental impact and has extended the operating lives of such equipment.
"Economically it makes sense"  - Snr Luciano Ortanlano quotes and continues. The life expectancy of any plastic pallet boxes is infinitely greater than wood. and has paid for itself within the first months of its life . When other factors are considered - Hygiene and produce protection ! ,  it is not surprising the agriculture industry has moved in this direction over recent years. Wooden boxes would often contaminate or abraise produce reducing value and profit potential. Wastage was a significant issue".
Commercially  Plastic BOXES are easier to maintain needing less service attention, but most noticeably after time, should servicing be required, the flexible nature and value of  plastic lends itself economically to  modest  maintenance. With this fact recognised advancements in plastic technologies over the last decade has seen clever developments in plastic welding and reshaping post production.
