Abstract [sv]

Plast återfinns i stora delar av det vardagliga livet, alltifrån i livsmedelsförpack-ningar till i fordonskomponenter. Plastens variation och komplexitet återspeglas i plastavfallsflödena. På grund av plastens breda användningsområden hamnar plast slutligen i ett otal, mer eller mindre, rena avfallsströmmar för vilka förutsättningar-na för olika avfallsbehandlingsmetoder varierar.

Projektet är en förstudie med mål att kartlägga plastavfallsflödena i Sverige avse-ende på kvantitet, var de uppkommer, vilka plasttyper plastavfallsströmmarna hu-vudsakligen innehåller samt hur plasten slutligt omhändertas. Metoden för kart-läggningen har baserats på uttag från olika typer av databaser (som till exempel den officiella avfallsstatistiken som tas fram av SMED, Avfall Webb och Utrikeshan-delsstatistiken på SCB), uppgifter i litteraturen samt kontakter med branschaktörer. I Tabell S1 sammanfattas resultaten från studien med hänsyn till identifierade plastavfallsflöden i Sverige uppdelat i sektorer och på hur plastavfallet behandlas och i vilken omfattning det behandlas inom respektive utanför Sverige. De avfalls-strömmar för vilka det är oklart huruvida behandlingen sker utanför Sverige har angivits med ett frågetecken.

Abstract [en]

Plastics are found everywhere, in applications such as food packaging materials to components manufactured for the car industry. The variation and complexity of plastics is reflected in the waste streams of the material. Due to the wide use of plastics, plastic materials also end up in numerous different waste streams for which the conditions for waste treatment methods focusing on recycling varies.

This study is to be considered as a pre-study with the overall objective of generat-ing an overview of the waste streams of plastics. The aim of the study is to identify and quantify the waste streams of plastics in Sweden. This both in terms of quan-tity expressed in tonnes, but also regarding the distribution among different sorts of plastics and the expected treatment.

For mapping the flows of plastics data has been compiled from various databases (such as the official waste statistics produced by SMED, the so-called Avfall Webb (loosely translated "waste web") and foreign trade statistics), data from literature and contacts taken with the industry. Table S1 summarizes the results from the study with respect to the identified plastic waste streams in Sweden and how the waste streams are treated. The waste streams for which it is unclear whether the treatment takes place outside Sweden are marked with a question mark.
