RESEARCH

Plastic Info Flows

The  project evaluates the plastic packaging value chains – from material use to end of life – to understand where improved information flows could lead to  the prevention of plastic waste. Circular Berlin works together with TU Berlin to realise the project and understand different implementation scenarios. Other partners are Wuppertal institute, TU Delft, Circularise, and Cyclic Design.
