A new £1.4 million flagship projects competition was launched at the inaugural annual meeting for members of The UK Plastics Pact, held in London on 11 October 2018. The competition, which is managed by ACR+ member WRAP working in partnership with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), was one of several special announcements made at the Summit. It will engage Britain's best scientists and innovators to help move the country towards more circular economic and sustainable approaches to plastics. Grants will be awarded under the UK Circular Plastics Flagship Projects Competition to applicants who demonstrate creative business ideas to reduce the environmental impacts of plastic, and which bring greater circularity in the use of plastic. The 2018 UK Plastics Pact Summit was the first meeting of Pact members since the programme launched in April 2018. New WRAP research and guidance were introduced which address key issues around plastic packaging, and with the collecting and processing of post-consumer plastics. They include;

  1. Design tips for making rigid plastic packaging more recyclable
  2. National Recycling Guidelines - updated
  3. Composition of plastic waste collected via kerbside
  4. PlasticFlow 2025 - Plastic Packaging Flow Data ReportMinimum thickness of plastic bottles to be recycled
