On 8 March, the APE Eu spoke at the 7th session of the high-level panel of the European decarbonisation pathways initiative. As President of the European association of industrialists of the plasticulture, Bernard Le Moine recalled the necessary role of the plastic in the agricultural production, its positive impact on the yields and its contribution to the protection of the environment, in particular by the conservation of CO2 in soils.
He also took the opportunity to highlight the disastrous consequences of mismanagement of Used Agricultural Plastics.
