New EU report acknowledges the potential of bio-based plastics to successfully realise the circular economy in Europe

The European Commission has delivered the report A circular economy for plastics, which provides research insights from EU-funded projects to support policy development and funding decisions. The objective is to foster the use of pastics that could circulate with full transparency at high-value usage, while minimising the risks to human health and the environment.


New study by the European Commission assesses the environmental impact of bio-based products in comparison to petrochemical counterparts

The European Commission has published a new study Environmental impact assessments of innovative bio-based products. The study aims at providing science-based facts and evidences on the environmental impacts of bio-based products for comparison with petrochemical plastic counterparts, in order to support the future bioeconomy policy and decision-making at the EU level.
