Short description: We are looking for solutions that supports and extends the producers responsibility in the full life cycle of plastic substitutes specially the disposable ones (bioplastics, paper, other compostable materials).
Market potential: Production of plastic needs to be made more resource efficient and sustainable, thus allowing for longer use, reuse and recycling. EU regulations are also moving towards this direction.
Timing: Plastic alternatives are emerging but the waste collection and recycling is not managed well. Producers need awareness raising and solutions to be able to organize themselves accordingly.
Desired result: The outcome of the collaboration would be to have an efficient method and process to connect the different stakeholders in the production of alternatives to single use plastic products.
Information on challenge owner: Small SME (10-49 staff).
Market presence of challenge owner: Active in one country.
