For: TKI E&I – Topconsortium voor Kennis en Innovatie – Energie en Industrie

[August 2020 – January 2021]

The Dutch Top consortium for Knowledge and Innovation Energy and Industry (TKI E&I) wanted to establish how well plastics supply-chains, of all plastic types, could be followed on the Dutch market, from production of the basic materials or imports to recycling and/or exports. This analysis mapped out per plastic flow how much is produced, exported and imported in the Netherlands.

To gain insight into the innovation tasks for a circular plastics chain, TKI-E&I needs a much better picture of how much product can be counted on for processing in recycling. What is the quality and purity of these plastic waste streams? How can one gain insight into the volumes and type of plastics? Is it possible for the sector to monitor which flows enter the Dutch market and how can they be monitored when they enter the waste chain? This research has shown that plastic flows can be partly tracked via publicly accessible statistical data such as Eurostat and CBS, but the picture is far from complete in the waste and recycling chain.
