BBIA contests findings of report produced for Resourcing the Future on plastic waste

BBIA criticises Resourcing the Future’s (RTF) report on plastics, ‘Eliminating avoidable plastic waste by 2042: a use-based approach to decision and policy-making’, for the misinformation on bioplastics contained in the report.

BBIA feels that the report contains a number of inaccuracies that mislead the public and are damaging to the bioplastics sector at a time of unprecedented interest in plastics waste. BBIA asks that the report be withdrawn and a public correction issued.

BBIA has released a response document addressing what it feels to be serious inaccuracies and inadequacies in the report. You can read the response document in full at this link: http://bbia.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/bbia-comments-on-rtf-paper-final-june-2018.pdf
