New Position Paper on the SUPD

In light of the most recent policy developments at the EU, Reloop has prepared a new position paper in order to contribute to the trialogue negotiations on the Single-Use Plastic Directive (SUPD).

With this paper, Reloop hopes to contribute to the trialogue discussions by highlighting some of the key issues which we believe are crucial for establishing an ambitious new directive that will help achieve a real circular economy of single-use plastics and reduce its negative impacts on the environment. Some of the issues touched upon are recycled content mandates; 90% collection and recycling target for beverage bottles by 2025; expanded list of banned products under Article 5 to include oxo-degradable plastic and expanded polystyrene, end-of-life costs under EPR in Article 8, and EPR for fishing gear under Article 8.
