The European Commission has proposed a EU-wide common recycling objective which is 65% MSW by 2030, aiming to ensure a more sustainable use of resources and reduce environmental impact.

In recent years PICVISA has focused on the development of solutions to recover materials which today make a considerable percentage of dump plastics and glass. The fraction below 80 mm is often treated for metal recovery processes and follows a compost production process, power generation or simply dump.
