The project “Baltic Approaches to Handling Plastic Pollution under a Circular Economy Context” (BALTIPLAST) aims at the prevention and reduction of plastic waste in the Baltic Sea Region, focusing on single use plastic reduction, improvements in plastic packaging and innovative collection and treatment systems at the municipality level. A consortium of partners from Germany, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania will test concrete solutions at three levels of operation: Strategic and management; technological/technical; communication & behavior change. The project involves some key actors in the plastic waste value chain, primarily municipalities in the participating countries, as well as SMEs and large enterprises operating in the field of waste management. NGOs and interest groups will also be involved, in the dissemination of results. BALTIPLAST contributes to EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, specifically to the Policy Area of Bio-economy, dwelling on responsible use of resources, changing mindsets and consumer behavior, through cross-sectorial approaches, by up-scaling waste to integrate it into a circular economy, by testing public procurement models and by integrating circular economy policies in the activities of the target groups. The project design is guided by co-creative innovation, through new schemes of collaboration in country clusters, as reflected in the project Group of Activities, further transferring them to a transnational level. Ultimately, BALTIPLAST may provide a long-term contribution to on-going efforts to reduce the plastic that enters the Baltic Sea Region. The project BALTIPLAST co-financed by Interreg Baltic Sea Region helps driving the transition to a green and resilient Baltic Sea region.
