Stuart Foster, CEO of RECOUP said: “We welcome Rebound’s extremely thorough plastic specification standards, essential to achieve quality which enables recycling to be done in an effective and ethical way and develop a universal standard for plastics to be traded on an international scale. These standards are extensive but easy to follow, and they promise to be a great start to ensure that material is compliant with shipment criteria such as the recent changes to the Basel Convention and EU shipping regulations.

“The ongoing challenges and questions that face us all are many – this is matched by the fundamental shift in attitude towards improved long-term use of plastic resources and the development of circular economy models. These specifications help to bridge the gap between the known limitations of recycling infrastructure, and the need for responsible exports to achieve higher recycling rates and targets in both developed and developing markets.”
