Improving markets for recycled plastics: trends, prospects and policy response
On behalf of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Resource Futures conducted a detailed review of global recycled plastics markets. This included evaluating trends, challenges, key issues and policy interventions.
- Assess trends and factors affecting global trade in recycled plastics
- Identify barriers to effectively functioning recycled plastics markets
- Identify and evaluate potential policies for improving recycled plastic markets
Resource Futures conducted an extensive, desk-based review of recycled plastic markets. The study comprised a review of data available from a wide range of available publicly and proprietary sources, and information provided by OECD member governments. A ‘policy mapping’ approach was used to identify and evaluate potential policies for improving recycled plastics markets.
The study provided a detailed, evidence-based assessment of recycled plastics markets and the barriers that prevent them functioning properly. The study also identified appropriate policies for improving markets and serves as a key reference for OECD member governments on this issue. The full report can be found on the OECD website.
