VINYLPLUS® MED accelerates sustainability in healthcare

VinylPlus®, the Voluntary Commitment to sustainable development of the European PVC industry, unveils today a new collaborative project called VinylPlus® Med. Aimed at accelerating sustainability in healthcare across Europe through the recycling of discarded single-use PVC medical devices, the project brings together hospitals, waste managers, recyclers and the PVC industry.

Adequate sorting and recycling of non-infectious plastic waste can significantly reduce the environmental impact of hospitals and their operational costs. Building on the success of the VinylPlus-funded RecoMed recycling scheme of PVC masks and tubing, VinylPlus now launches VinylPlus® Med – a collaborative partnership to accelerate sustainability in European healthcare.
