Webinar – Plastic feedstock for recycling in the Netherlandscircular economy
December 14, 2023
What is the expected supply and demand for plastic waste in the Netherlands and how will this likely develop until 2030? What (suggested) policies impact the waste supply and demand, and import and export dynamics? Based on this, what needs to happen to move the Dutch plastics economy towards a more circular direction? These were the central questions in a market study conducted by KPMG called “Plastic feedstock for recycling in the Netherlands”, commissioned by the Koninklijke Vereniging van de Nederlandse Chemische Industrie (VNCI), Vereniging Afvalbedrijven (VA), Plastics Europe NL, and the Acceleration Table for Chemical Recycling of Plastics (Versnellingstafel Chemische Recycling). The results of this study have been published on November 30. On Thursday, December 14, 2023, we discussed the study and its implications during a webinar. KPMG presented the most important findings of the study, after which a panel of experts from PreZero, Shell, and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (IenW) discussed the implications of the study.
