Durable, light, low-cost and with good barrier properties – flexible plastics are a leading material in packaging applications in consumer goods, construction, and agriculture. However, their reuse potential is limited, making flexible plastics a drain on Europe’s resources and a serious pollution threat. As part of the Circular Week 2022, our session “Flexible Plastics in Europe’s Circular Economy” gives an overview of the current management practices as well as viewpoints to increase circularity of flexible plastics on a European scale in the future – register for the event to join the discussion!

This baseline study provides an overview of the scope, challenges, status quo and driving factors in efforts to increase circularity in multi-layer plastic packaging. Most importantly, it identifies the motivations, opportunities, and barriers that major stakeholders face along the multi-layer plastic packaging value chain and which either enable or hinder them from contributing toward more circularity. These factors are crucial for achieving significant change and therefore building a baseline for all MERLIN project activities and the monitoring of their results. By enabling stakeholders to exploit opportunities, mitigate barriers, and tackle unfavourable framework conditions, the MERLIN consortium partners aim to lead the change towards circularity in multi-layer plastic packaging.
Call for Collaboration
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of the economy, representing 99% of all European businesses. Their sustainable and digital transformation is essential for a thriving economy and a more resilient society, but what does this mean for them? With a finger on the pulse of global mega trends, we are deeply engaged with SMEs and all other relevant stakeholders in leading transformation journeys that are inclusive and impactful.
