Plastic recycling is currently an important topic of discussion, both in WEEE recycling and in public discourse. Alongside metals, plastics are the main bulk material fraction in electrical and electronic equipment. However, they are recycled to a lesser extent due to technological and economic challenges. As recycling rate targets increase, WEEE plastic recycling becomes more and more of a necessity for recycling operators. However, recent developments including market disruptions and more stringent treatment requirements may actually hamper WEEE plastic recycling.
