Tim Duret, the Director of Sustainable Technology at Veolia, featured on the latest episode of The Dairy Dialogue Podcast by the Dairy Reporter.
In the podcast, you can learn more about why it’s so important that we promote a circular economy, as well as how our new project is keeping plastics in particular in the circular loop. From 03:35 to 16:55 Tim discusses the new opportunities that will come with incoming government initiatives such as the Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) and the goals we are already working towards in collaboration with the UK Plastic Pact.
Veolia is set to make a major increase to the amount of recycled plastic used in milk bottles and close the UK to UK recycling loop for the UK dairy industry.
Eliminating single-use plastics has been high on the sustainability agenda in the UK for a while now, with items like plastic straws and cotton buds being banned in the last couple of years.
Plastic has become a hugely contentious issue in recent years, with more awareness being raised about the problem of plastic leakage into the environment.
