Abstract

The use of plastic as packaging material has been increasing at an exponential rate with time over the past decades. After use, most of the plastic waste has traditionally been disposed of into landfills, which in turn have led to serious environmental concerns, but landfill sites are decreasing. Discusses options such as recycling and reuse of post‐ consumer plastics, which may contribute to solving these environmental problems and touches on relevant European legislation.
