The complete rPM survey report is accessible free of charge in just a few clicks.


The survey on the use of recycled plastics materials by plastics converters in Europe was conducted by Polymer Comply Europe on behalf of EuPC from May to September 2017.


European Plastics Converters (EuPC) is the leading EU-level trade association, based in Brussels, representing European plastics converting companies. EuPC totals about 46 national as well as European plastics converting industry associations and represents more than 50,000 companies, producing over 50 million tons of plastic products every year. The European plastics industry makes a significant contribution to the welfare in Europe by enabling innovation, creating quality of life to citizens and facilitating resource efficiency and climate protection. More than 1.6 million people are working in EU converting companies (mainly SMEs) to create a turnover in excess of € 260 billion per year.  


The participation of 485 respondents from 28 different countries ensures that the results give a representative image of the industry as whole. The industry sample as well adequately represents the whole industry in products segments, with companies from all major sectors participating.


The results shed light on the incentives for the use of rPM as well the barriers hindering its usage. Furthermore, the current legislative framework is assessed regarding its ability to support the use of rPM by converters, and an outlook on future developments is given.
