The coastal areas of England, France, Belgium (Flanders) and the Netherlands are generating a huge amount of plastic waste. However, overall plastic recycling rates remain low.

A lot of plastic waste is not effectively recycled or validated. These ‘lost plastics’ can form a prominent role in the circular economy. There are substantial economic and environmental benefits to win by stepping away from traditional plastic disposal methods. 

PlastiCity will develop innovative sustainable logistics, linked to local lumping solutions at plastic reuse and refinery hubs. And we will provide stakeholders with useful data in a systematic way on urban platforms.
