Polimery 2020, No 1, 8


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2020.1.2

Summary

The article presents contemporary problems on the plastic packaging market, resulting from changes in the legislation of the European Union, introducing a new approach to the management of polymer materials at every stage of the life cycle. The idea of a Circular Economy (CE) has been described and issues related to packaging materials. Presented are the most important principles of eco-design of polymer packaging, in the aspect of reducing the formation of packaging waste and the suitability of packaging for recovery through material recycling. The eco-design of plastic packaging included in the Circular Economy concept may soon become a significant competitive advantage in the packaging industry.
