This year, AGPU will work on a number of different projects in cooperation with VinylPlus. One of these projects is the development of a guideline on the implementation of the requirements of waste, and substance legislation for the recycling of plastic waste that contains substances included in the REACH Authorisation List (Annex XIV). The focus of this project is the creation of a guidance document for practical use that contains input from the relevant authorities and German Federal Ministries, as well as industrial associations and recycling companies.

The leading body in this joint project is the BKV (Beteiligungs- und Kunststoffverwertungsgesellschaft mbH) with support from PlasticsEurope, AGPU, VinylPlus and other stakeholders. AGPU coordinates the PVC topics involved in the project via its extended Recycling Working Group.
