Suez looks to double plastics recovery in Europe

SITA parent company Suez Environmental has set a goal to double its production of recycled plastics in Europe in the next five years.

The goal was created against a huge and growing secondary plastics stream - according to Suez the production of plastics in Europe has multiplied 150-fold over the last 50 years, reaching 50 million tonnes a year in 2014.
