Nice find Shauney. Let's hope not too many PIs were scared out in the 25% drop since the results

From todays Shares magazine Government plans to end avoidable plastic waste by 2042 may have positive implications for packaging giant RPC (RPC). The FTSE 250 company is already one of Europe’s biggest plastics recyclers, processing an estimated 70,000 tonnes every year. With China having closed its doors to overseas plastic recycling from the start of 2018, RPC may be well-placed as part of sustainability drives. While Conservative plans remain vague at this stage, RPC’s deep expertise may be vital in coming to grips with many of the complexities of plastic waste, such as the one-off use case nature of medical plastic packaging, for example.

For me was more about lowering the size of the bottle if the consumption will stay the same they need to produce more plastic bottles as the size decrease to 1.5L from currently 1.75L

Drinks consumption will remain the same. Consumption of sugar-free variants of coca cola etc. will however increase I believe.

Nicely put, good article.I wonder as well what impact in UK will have a sugar tax on drinks Coca Cola already said they shrinking the bottles from 1.75L to 1.5L and I'm sure consumption of the drinks will be the same as before if not more, which means that they will need to produce more plastic bottles, I wonder how many other manufactures will follow the same process

The Spectator on the “truth about plastic”: htTps://www.spectator.co.uk/2018/01/revealed-the-truth-about-plastic/?utm_source=Adestra&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=200118_Weekly_Highlights_03_NONSUBS Consider the tobacco industry ... the more restrictive, the higher the price! Consider the green energy policy .... led to “fuel poverty”! Consider palm oil and deforestation. Consider ethanol and the price of maize.

Sentiment towards plastic use might be changing, but it won’t go away. Plastics will continue to be used and touch us in nearly every walk of life. Food packaging, is excuse the pun a drop in the ocean. Eliminating this would have a limited impact, might make us feel better, but what about all the big ticket items where plastic use is in much greater use. RPC as a leading plastics manufacturer should view this sentiment as a business opportunity, not a threat. To be at the forefront of technological advancement is where they need to align. If they can place themselves in the eye of plastic advancement in recycling they will hit a sweet spot. Remember that as developing countries gain traction what will increase in use... plastic. I’m more concerned about trading than sentiment... let’s wait and see.

To be fair to the plastics packaging industry,they are producing goods to a specification which suits the manufacturer of the goods packsged. Biodegradable packaging would suit a very large percentage of products but consider the needs of manufacturers who have to prevent the product from escaping such as bleach,motor oil etc.where degrading of the packaging would cause leakage and reduce the shelf life of the product What would Sainsbury or Tesco do with all the bleach type products when the degrading starts.Also a considerable number of manufactureres,particulary in the food industry cannot afford to have their products contaminated by by outside forces which could be a result of biodegradability of packaging. I feel the answer lies on two fronts.First industry in general must be made more responsible for the disposal of its packaging after sales,manufacturers making products whch require non biodefradable packaging should be involved in the recycling of the packaging and secondly the generel public must be more aware of the desirability of recycling.This of coourse will require a lot more investment in the recycling industry to make it easier to access.In the meantime it seems that poor old RPC are “taking the can back” for the whole of industry.no pun intended

Ultimately the answer will probably lie in the increased use of Biodegradable plastics and I suppose RPC could lead the way in that respect - depending on their ability to move in that direction. A statement of intent from them in that connection might be helpful??

Plastic bashing is a cause celebre at present! Ironically, waste collection in UK results in very little plastic (from UK)being disgorged into the oceans.

Sentiment is NOT with RPC at the moment, best time to buy IMO and then wait.

Agreed, the fall is probably overdone but the publicity surrounding plastic doesn’t seem to want to go away. The statement yesterday from Carclo will not have helped.

I would have thought that recent media talk about building roads using recycled plastic that are cheaper and longer lasting than bitumen would have been bullish for the company

As usual there’s also going to be a lot of confusion in people’s heads about what to do. On the one hand there’s corporate policy for a 100% re-cycle, avoiding anything to do with lumber (cutting down the rain-forest syndrome): htTp://corporate.danone.co.uk/en/discover/sustainability/better-world/packaging/ and on the other hand there’s going to potentially be a move back to paper-based packaging: htTp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42692642 Given this environmental conflict product needs still to be distributed: product like food that needs protection FROM the environment (oxygen) and product that needs to be protected from escaping TO the environment. Where this complex system goes is anyone’s guess. But given the long target dates it looks like it will be a while which also indicates that it really is complex! In between there will be lots of room for propaganda, myth building and social peer pressure. How we all react as consumers will probably be the key... and who knows where that will end! I think DYOR is a good start!
