The recycling of household packaging waste surges ahead with the start of construction work at Ecoo in Beringen.
This recycling centre, located at the foot of the Biostoom power plant will be used for " PE film to PE film " recycling, i.e. the recycling of polyethylene (PE), the plastic found among other things in the outer packaging of multipacks and in packaging bags. Now that everyone in Flanders has access to the expanded collection of plastic packaging via the New Blue Bag at home, and this is also being implemented at the workplace, this new recycling chain ensures the circular management of the raw materials.
