The recycling and waste management sector is highly volatile since Covid, the demand for recycled materials is in decline since mid-2022, and the volume of non-recyclable waste remains a major cause for concern.

We need bold actions to create sustainable models and increase the circularity of materials.

The partnership between @Landbell Group and @CARBIOS, which we announced last week, is a great example of this.

Together, we are going beyond traditional processes and pushing for innovation to ensure the circularity of PET from packaging and textile waste.

This cooperation leverages our expertise and network in waste management and material preparation, and CARBIOS’ patented biorecycling process, which turns PET waste to food-grade monomers that can be repolymerized to high-quality PET.

The announcement of our partnership is also very timely.

It perfectly aligns with Tuesday’s provisional agreement between the EU Council and Parliament on the proposed Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR).

The provisional agreement maintains a strong focus on the full-life cycle of packaging, with headline targets for minimum recycled content in plastic packaging for producers and brand-owners.

Landbell Group and CARBIOS will ensure increased recycling of PET waste to the highest quality – and therefore contribute to fulfilling the recycled content targets of the PPWR.

So, now is the perfect time for bold action.
