EU Consultation on plastics feedstocks

Stakeholders’ consultation – Comparative LCA of alternative feedstocks for plastics production

In January 2018,  the Commission adopted the European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy, proposing a vision where alternative materials and feedstocks are developed and used where evidence shows they are more sustainable compared to non-renewable alternatives.

The Commission is now conducting a data gathering exercise on the life cycle of plastics and alternatives feedstocks to understand what the implications of moving away from non-renewables would be. Deadline for input is 31 July 2018.
