Increasing the uptake of recycled materials by businesses â€“ a review of barriers, enablers and circular business models
The presentation will cover the various barriers and enablers for recycling (for the total plastic industry and all types of products). The aim is to provide practical insights into the current situation in industry and to provide an overview of the barriers and enablers for the uptake of recycled plastics by businesses and other actors along the value chain. Findings are based on the outcomes from several workshops held in the Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom and Belgium as part of the Interreg project TRANSFORM-CE. Throughout the presentation, practical examples of circular business models will be given, with lots of inspiration to stimulate the uptake of recycling by businesses. Such examples will have a direct link to the outlined barriers and enablers. In summary, the barriers and enablers for recycling and the practical examples from industry will allow others to determine the steps that are needed to increase the uptake of recycled materials by businesses.
