EXTR:ACT, the European platform to improve and increase the recycling of beverage cartons and similar fibre-based multi-material packaging in Europe, recently reported that its various projects across the continent now allow roughly 50,000 tonnes of non-fibre components of beverage cartons to be recycled annually.

Elisabeth Skoda speaks to Annick Carpentier, Director General at ACE, the Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment, and Michael Brandl, Director General at EXTR:ACT, and discusses beverage carton recycling challenges, recent developments and opportunities.
