Further slight increase in license volumes


The volume of licensed packaging grew to 1.65 million tons in the third quarter, Euwid reports.

In the previous quarter, around 1.61 million tons of packaging were licensed from the dual systems, according to figures published by the Central Packaging Register Office (ZSVR). For lightweight packaging (LVP), the ZSVR recorded slight increases in the third quarter, with hardly any changes for PPK and a higher increase for glass compared to the second quarter. Across all fractions, licensed volumes increased 3.7 percent compared to the first three quarters of 2021. LVP increased only slightly by 0.1 percent, PPK most significantly by 6.7 percent and glass by 3.8 percent. According to Euwid, some system operators expect LVP to be licensed for less than 1.82 million tons in 2022 as a whole. The market shares of the eleven system operators shifted as follows in the third quarter, according to ZSVR data: Market leader Belland-Vision, a subsidiary of Veolia, made significant gains in glass and small gains in LVP. The dual system Zentek remained in second place for glass despite a slight loss of share. Remondis' system, Eko-Punkt, gained slightly in market share for PPK, while Interseroh+ reported growth for all three fractions. DSD GmbH in particular had lost license volumes. Likewise, the Redual system of the Reclay Group.
