Recycling of packaging waste Directive 94/62/EC states that by the end of 2025, at least 65% of all packaging waste must be recycled. The recycling targets per material are [13]: • 50% of plastic. • 25% of wood. • 70% of ferrous metals. • 50% of aluminum. • 70% of glass, and • 75% of paper and cardboard.


The next target, which should be achieved by the end of 2030, is that at least 70% by weight of all packaging should be recycled [13].


In Directive 94/62/EC it can be found that: “Producer responsibility schemes provide for the financing or financing and organisation of the return and/or collection of used packaging and/or packaging waste and its channelling to the most appropriate waste management option, as well as for reuse or recycling of the collected packaging and packaging waste.”


By the end of 2024, EU countries should ensure that producer responsibility schemes are established for all packaging [13]. Established product schemes will need to satisfy minimum requirements defined by Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EC.


Final Remarks Producing packaging for lubricants uses considerable amounts of metal and plastics which ends up as waste. Companies that produce packaging tend to lower the amount of packaging waste by using recycled material, which helps. Besides this, lubricant companies should work on developing innovative packaging which decreases the amount of additional waste. Fuchs Lube Cube and Valvoline FlexFill are good examples.


Currently, many lubricants made from mineral oil cannot be replaced by biodegradable oils. But innovative products from companies, including Novvi LLC[14] bring completely new set of biodegradable lubricants[15] which will be able to replace mineral oils. It is clear that lubricant packaging and the lubricants market is on track to introduce new kinds of biodegradable packaging and biodegradable lubricants leading the lubricant market to satisfy strict targets set in European Green Deal.
