BIR Plastics Committee: Europe Over-regulated
In his first meeting as Chairman of the BIR Plastics Round-Table, Surendra Borad of the Belgium-based Gemini Corporation NV lamented the imposition of multiple rules and regulations on recyclable plastics in Europe. He told delegates in Brussels that he sees the plastics industry in Europe as being over-regulated, especially if compared with the Nort American and Australian market where recycling companies are not subject to so many strict rules.
BIR is the international trade association of the recycling industries. Around 60 countries are represented through their national trade associations and individual companies which are involved in recycling.
