Biodegradability of plastics at the European Parliament

Next SAPEA webinar “Plastic pollution: Are biodegradable plastics a solution?” will be hosted by Mohammed Chahim MEP, Co-chair of the Circular Economy Working Group of the European Parliament Intergroup on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development.

The event will take place on 16 June 2021 at 13:00 CEST will review the latest scientific evidence on the biodegradability of plastics from SAPEA, and discuss the policy recommendations made by the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors — recommendations which will inform the forthcoming Commission’s policy framework related to bio-based, biodegradable and compostable plastics, and help to define the main challenges and policy actions needed in this area. In doing so, this European Parliament Intergroup event will bring together EU policymakers and representatives from both the private sector and NGO communities, to openly discuss and explore the opportunities and challenges ahead in relation to biodegradable plastics.
