With the EU striving to achieve circularity and climate neutrality by 2050, this publication explores the Netherlands' target of reducing primary raw material consumption by 50% by 2030. This is all the more impressive given that the current global circularity rate is 7.2%.
The brochure showcases over 20 best practices from the Netherlands, with an emphasis on the transformative applications of chemical recycling. The toolboxes and strategic approaches presented serve as a pragmatic blueprint for implementing effective and sustainable chemical recycling initiatives.
The commitments listed on the platform primarily involve the company’s internal stakeholders, along with suppliers, partners and customers. All aspects of the circular economy are leveraged in these commitments, from the supply of sustainable resources to the repair and recycling of the end product.
In view of the ongoing regulatory developments in the field of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation, this in-person event on 4 July will discuss the potential of using chemical recycling technologies as part of an ecosystem of solutions for increasing circularity of plastics.
The Spanish company Jeanologia is currently spearheading the greatest challenge facing the textile industry: to achieve total dehydration and detoxification in denim industry.

Tyres are complex products essential to the mobility of millions of Europeans. Likewise, tyre recycling is essential to the sustainability of the entire tyre value chain, be it in terms of resource efficiency or climate neutrality. Yet, despite a landmark landfill ban in 2006, much needs to be done to improve the circularity of tyres. To give an order of magnitude, today, for one tyre that is recycled, one tyre gets incinerated for energy recovery, and the worse in terms of end-markets opportunities is yet to come.
The EuRIC conference on tyre recycling takes place in Brussels on 18 April 2023.
