Recent figures published by Eurostat (2011) on recycling packaging waste show that Belgium performs better than any other country in Europe. Eventhough we have to be carefull when comparing countries and their performances, it is an indication and a recognition of our good results
EXPRA (Extended Producer Responsibility Alliance) is the recently founded umbrella organisation for packaging, packaging waste recovery and recycling systems which are owned by obliged industry and work on a not-for-profit basis. Fost Plus has become an EXPRA member.
Today Fost Plus collects plastic bottles and flasks via the blue PMD bags. How usefull would it be to expand the selective collection of PMD to other types of plastic?
In order to better understand consumer perception of what constitutes excessive packaging, Fost Plus and the Packaging and Packaging Waste Platform ordered a qualitative analysis.
No fewer than 700 participants from 37 countries attended the fifth PRO EUROPE Congress, which was organised by Fost Plus this year. This makes it the most popular packaging and waste event of the year.
