Plastic waste has been a global problem for quite some time, but during the pandemic things seem to have become worse for different reasons. In this edition we highlight various approaches to tackling this problem and also raise the question of what alternatives we have in terms of recycling, e.g. chemical recycling. But, of course, not everything is about plastic waste. Other topics cover the EU Taxonomy Regulation, food waste, battery recycling and the waste trade in general.
