WRAP Publishes “Investment-Boosting” Plastics Recycling Research

The Waste and Resources Action Plan (WRAP) has published a series of reports on plastics recycling, following from work aimed at stimulating investment in the sector and increase recycling. 

The work undertaken by WRAP includes identifying the potential economically viable end markets for PET pots, tubs and trays, as well as help drive demand and build confidence in collecting more mixed plastics.

“Closing the loop” on plastics is a key contributing factor to meeting recycling targets, and WRAP has been progressing a number of projects all feeding into this theme:

  • Developing end markets for PET Pots, Tubs and Trays – to identify potential economically viable end markets for PET pots, tubs and trays (PPTs), and help drive demand and build confidence in collecting more mixed plastics. We have also published case studies on PTT collection that can be found here.
