MSc Study Report on mechanical recycled post-consumer PP

28 September 2015

Interest in the circular economy is growing rapidly. What is actually meant with this concept and to what extent does ‘circular thinking’ provide solutions for the packaging of products and the recycling/recovery of the used packaging materials? In a NVC topical lecture delivered September 8th in the NVC Auditorium Ms. Emma van Bruggen MSc presented her MSc graduation work at Delft University of Technology, which was rated AAA (a score of 9 out of 10 max): “Circular economy of mechanical recycled post-consumer PP”. Subsequent to her lecture, insights were shared on the NVC input to the Public Consultation by the European Commission for her plans for the European Circular Economy Strategy.
