German converter sensitive to chemical opportunities


Film manufacturer Südpack has committed itself to chemical recycling and is calling upon companies across the value chain to collaborate and achieve positive change.

The company believes that chemical recycling of plastics waste is a promising approach to meet ambitious recycling targets, including the 70 per cent by mass requirement of the German Packaging Law by 2022. The EU has also set a target of 10 million tonnes of recycled plastics to be used in new packaging by 2025, and all plastics packaging on the European market must be reusable or recyclable at low cost by 2030.
