Envar are please to announce that we are working with Compostable Coalition UK, a 10 partner initiative aimed at assuring compostable packaging is effectively collected and organically recycled via existing UK bio-waste infrastructure.
The Compostable Coalition UK: Closing the loop for compostable packaging project is backed by UK Research & Innovation’s (UKRI) flagship £60 million Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging Challenge. Compostable Coalition UK’s mission is to advance the wider collection & processing of compostable packaging in the UK by collaborating with all relevant stakeholders from end-consumers to local authorities and waste industry.
Envar already successfully processes compostable packaging alongside our existing food and garden waste streams. We welcome our involvement in this project and look forward to helping produce new data sets to evidence the benefits of this process, to secure the continued support for compostable materials from our industry and Government partners.
