BIR bolsters plastics presence with China addition

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

The China Scrap Plastics Association is joining the Belgium-based Bureau of International Recycling (BIR).

According to a release, the Chinese group, which was formed in Hong Kong last year, will help give BIR a deeper well of support in the plastics realm. "BIR is hoping that China Scrap Plastics Association’s membership will boost the BIR Plastics Committee and attract other associations and companies from that sector worldwide," the release stated. "China is an important market for plastics recyclables, and BIR needs a professional body in this country to ensure environmentally sound processing and recycling of plastics."

The China Scrap Plastic Association includes 120 member companies active in the recycling of plastics, with a total import volume of around 3 million tons annually.
