Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE) is an organization representing the voice of the European plastics recyclers who reprocess plastic waste into high quality material destined for production of new articles. Recyclers are important facilitators of the circularity of plastics and the transition towards the circular economy.
Plastics recycling in Europe is a rapidly growing sector representing over €7.7 billion in turnover, 9.6 million tonnes of installed recycling capacity, more than 650 recycling facilities and over 20.000 employees.
Plastics Recyclers Europe provides plastics recyclers with representation at the European level and among the leading industry organizations. It promotes the use of quality plastic recyclates and offers concrete advice on developing innovative, recyclable products and packaging.
Plastics Recyclers Europe is a co-organizer of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe, the largest annual event devoted to plastics recycling in Europe, as well as of the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe, the first awards that recognize and celebrate achievement throughout the scope of the European plastics recycling industry.
