Online tool that monitors uptake of recycled polymers launches in the UK


MOnitoring Recyclates for Europe (MORE) — the single, unified online tool to monitor the uptake of recycled polymers into products — is now available for use by converters in the United Kingdom (UK).

MORE is designed to monitor and register the industry’s efforts to reach the EU target of 10 million tonnes of recycled polymers being used annually between 2025 and 2030.
The IT platform was developed by European Plastics Converters (EuPC), the EU-level trade association, in cooperation with its members. Alexandre Dangis (EuPC managing director) and Philip Law (British Plastics Federation director general) officially signed the MORE Partnership Agreement on 11 November in London, UK.

MORE is now available to British plastics converting companies, where they can register and submit the volumes of recycled polymers used in their products. The UK is the 13th country in the European Union to offer the platform to the industry. Data that is submitted is confidential and only aggregated numbers are published.
