Plastics to resource pipeline warns; low oil prices could devastate plastics recycling

You are here

Last week, the plastics to resource pipeline has been very active on social media and in the media in general, warning our policy makers that the current crisis combined with low oil prices could mean the end for a lot of small, innovative recycling businesses. Prof. Steven De Meester published an opinion piece about this on LinkedIn, together with prof. Kim Ragaert and Karl Vrancken. Combined with an article in the national newspaper and a radio interview, they hope to send a clear message to our policy makers; restarting the economy after this crisis is the perfect time to put more emphasis on the transition towards a sustainable future!
