Recycling industry

From many perspectives, industry plays an extremely important role in the recycling field. Firstly, it is essential to apply environmental criteria to product design and production. Processes must be improved and the impact of manufactured products must be reduced, both during and after the end of their useful life. More innocuous raw materials should be used. In some cases, recycled materials can be used, which increases opportunities for recycling and/or reuse. Secondly, industry is one of the main actors in the establishment of synergies that can boost demand for recovered materials and products and thus strengthen the market for these materials. Finally, industry is one of the bases for the generation or incorporation of research, development and innovation initiatives in the field of recycling and reuse.From many perspectives, industry plays an extremely important role in the recycling field.
