The plastics industry in Germany is an important sector and the key industry in fields such as lightweight construction, packaging and building. Plastics products and applications are far too valuable to simply be thrown away, even at the end of their lifespan. Regular information on how the flow of plastic material is developing precisely can be found in the „Consultic“ study, which is conducted every two years. The study is now being carried out for the 10th time in order to collect reliable facts and figures on the production, use and recycling of plastics in Germany. The study is also highly appreciated by politicians and other authorities. Over the next few months, Consultic Marketing & Industrieberatung GmbH will conduct surveys in more than 2000 companies from the fields of plastics production, processing and recycling. The survey documentation will be complemented by official statistics on the production and areas of application of plastics, as well as comprehensive waste analyses. The last study on PVC figures in Germany was made last year and can be downloaded from the PVC WIKI.
The current study is being produced on behalf of PlasticsEurope Germany, the Beteiligungs- und Kunststoffverwertungsgesellschaft mbH (BKV), the Bundesverband Sekundärrohstoffe und Entsorgung e.V. (bvse), the German Industry Association for Plastics Packaging and Films (IVK) and the Association of Plastics and Rubber Machinery of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA).
