The Danish Plastics Federation is the national trade association for plastics converting companies with around 250 members representing most of the Danish plastics industry. Fishboxes made from EPS are an important sector of the plastics industry as well as playing an important role in the Danish fish and seafood industry.
There is a national recycling scheme for used packaging materials which are not contaminated by food, dirt, chemicals or the like. EPS manufacturers drive the collection of approximately 50 tonnes of EPS each year and work is taking place to improve the collection ratio and lower costs.
The Danish environmental minister has pronounced a new strategy on recycling of plastics, metals, paper etc. This means that the Danish Plastics Federation is much involved in the discussions on how to organize new a collection and sorting system and how to make the systems economic and sustainable.
