Precycling project represented during the Bio!Toy conference

The PRecycling project participated in the Bio!Toy conference, which took place in Nuremberg (Germany) on 21 and 22 March 2023. The focus of the event was placed on the undisputable need to boost the development of sustainable industries within the toys sector. The main drivers of the event have been recyclability, the use of recycled/renewable raw materials as well as CO2 emissions reductions.


Synergy between PRecycling and Primus projects: cooperating towards the circularity in the plastics sector

Together with PRecycling project, Primus Project (Reforming secondary plastics to become the primary raw material choice for added-value products) as well was funded by the European Commission under the topic HORIZON-CL4-2021-RESILIENCE-01-10 (RIA) - Paving the way to an increased share of recycled plastics in added value products.

The recycling of plastic waste as a sustainable alternative to the production of toys

In order to improve plastics recycling and reuse, there are currently several regulations and legislations in place which specify a number of actions tailored to different sectors. In this regard, both the EU and State-levels legal framework set obligations to control the disposal of unsold excesses of non-perishable goods (e.g., toys), contextually encouraging activities such as their repair or reuse, and ultimately their recycling in accordance with defined waste hierarchies.
