Legislative enforcement and practical application of German Packaging Act contribute hugely to a new packaging design. Modulated Fees (§21), educational programme, high collection targets for 2022 and new applications for secondary raw materials: only few elements on the way to the circular economy. International multi-waste-stream compliance scheme acts as a partner for industry to deliver more innovative solutions. Circulation of packaging and products that cannot be eliminated or reused involves collection, sorting and recycling. However, this process comes at the net cost for practically all products in most geographies. The only proven and likely pathway to ensure dedicated, ongoing, and sufficient funding at scale is a fee based EPR scheme.
