Plastics recycling in Switzerland

The plastics recycling project tackles the issue whether more plastic fractions should be extracted from material or thermal recovery for ecological and economic reasons.

The Swiss plastics recycling project tackles the issue whether more plastic fractions should be extracted from material or thermal recovery for ecological and economic reasons, and if so, how this has to be implemented.

Based on a baseline study that shows the current amount of material flows and fractions in plastics collection and recycling in Switzerland, scenarios are assessed according to economic and ecological aspects.

Based on these results, recommendations are made for future plastic recycling options and to assess their feasibility.
