Technological innovation in the plastics industry and its influence on the environmental problems of plastic waste (SAST project no. 7) : Report on plastics in food packagingFunded under: FP2-MONITOR, FP2-SAST
The background of the project to which this report contributes is the increasing volume, variety and technical sophistication of plastics materials manufactured and used in the European Community which raise the need to overcome the environmental problem of plastics waste. The project encompasses therefore the whole range of implications of technological and institutional changes as well as socio-economic factors on the plastics and related industries and identifies the means to encourage innovation in an overall life-cycle perspective aimed at promoting plastic waste minimisation and prevention. This report, which is one of a set of specific study reports, deals with the study undertaken in the context of the food packaging industry.
