The data collection for the current „Material flow analysis for plastics in Germany 2019“ has started. In the coming months, more than 2,000 companies from the plastics production, processing and recycling industries will be surveyed and available statistics and studies evaluated. The plastics material flow analysis enjoys a high reputation among politicians, authorities and experts and shows that circular economy has long been a central topic for the German plastics industry and that the protection of the environment is an important concern for the entire industry.
In addition to AGPU and PlasticEurope Germany, clients include the BKV, bvse, BDE, GKV, pro-K, KRV and VCI. Within the scope of the data collection there will also be current data for the material PVC. A detailed PVC study is not planned until 2021.
