The plastic sense of plastic recycling
The Plastic Sense Foundation is a non-profit organisation that, among other activities, promotes the use and recycling of multilayer plastic packaging in line with a commitment to environmental conservation and initiatives supporting circular economy policies. With this in mind, the foundation is required to apply all its resources to fulfilling the purposes defined in its Articles of Association.Raising awareness about the use and recycling of multilayer polymers, as well as research, training and information in the field, the spread of best practices and the implementation of circular economy models, form the basis for all its actions. For this reason, it has developed a series of R&D+i projects and established a recycling standardisation process for these materials (Ecosense). The main objective for the foundation is to work on communicating the advantages of using and recycling these materials and passing on the concerns expressed by the sector to the competent bodies at either a national or supranational level in order for lines of action to be established (with the aim of creating or amending regulations) that will be capable of encouraging the use and recovery of multilayer polymers. It also aims to design and promote eco-innovation and eco-design projects with these materials to improve their recycling potential.
