The MORE platform, short for MOnitoring Recyclates for Europe, registered a use of 389,000 tonnes of recycled plastic materials by the companies participating in the initiative in France in 2018. It is the first report on the monitored volumes of recycled polymers used by plastics converting companies issued by the initiative since its launch by EuPC in April 2019.
The report is based on the platform’s first round of data collection in France. The collected data derived from the packaging, construction, automotive, and consumer goods sectors.
The MORE platform was established to monitor and register the industry’s progress towards the EU target to use 10 million tonnes of recycled plastics in new products by 2025,.
France is the first country to officially announce its results, thanks to the efforts of the French national plastics & composites converters association, Fédération de la Plasturgie, and the French plastics converting companies who cooperated by reporting their use of recycled polymers.
Overall, the MORE platform is currently available to plastics converting companies in 14 European countries, and is experiencing a constant growth of members and reported volumes. Data on recycled polymer consumption is collected on a yearly basis and the results are to be published per country and at the European level.
