European PVC industry launches VinylPlus
22 June 2011
The new initiative builds on the success of the Vinyl 2010 ten year voluntary commitment to enhance the sustainable production and use of PVC. Vinyl 2010 is widely regarded as leading example of industry self-regulation working in practice and delivering concrete results. Among its most significant achievements was the establishment of an infrastructure for the annual collection and recycling of over 250,000 tonnes of PVC - which prior to 2000 had been dismissed by many as an “unrecyclable” material destined for landfill.
