Report: Replicable strategy to produce solutions for the collection, sorting and reprocessing of commercial and industrial plastic waste in urban environments
This report outlines a strategy to produce solutions for the collection, sorting and reprocessing of commercial and industrial (C&I)1 plastic waste in urban environments. The strategy has been developed by the consortium of the Interreg 2 Seas project “PlastiCity” and will be applied in test studies in four European cities over the course of the project.
The aim is to provide guidance for urban and regional policymakers and researchers to, first, understand the current situation regarding the production of C&I plastic waste in their regions. Second, guidance is given on how to engage with the regional actors of the plastic waste value
chain and learn about their attitudes. Based on this knowledge, we provide suggestions for
potential material testing and test collections of plastic waste, which will result in new logistics
scenarios and new circular value chains that could be created.
The main objective overall is to
develop a circular network with local players throughout the plastic waste value chain that can form a so-called ‘plastic hub’, which will boost the local circular economy.
