"Projections of plastics use policy scenarios to 2060"
by Bibas, Ruben, Eleonora Mavroeidi, Elisa Lanzi and Rob Dellink

Plastics are among the most commonplace materials on the planet. Mounting evidence shows that plastics production and use and the related waste generation will continue to rise to unprecedented levels in the coming decades. This in turn will increase the leakage of micro- and macroplastics into the environment, both terrestrial and marine. The objective of the paper is to improve knowledge and projections of the economic drivers of the production and use of plastics. This report includes projections of plastics production and use under different scenarios about future global socio-economic trends. The results suggest that taxing all plastics, or only single use plastics, has very limited impacts on GDP (below 0.2% below the baseline projection in 2030) and are efficient in reducing plastics use, with total plastics production decreasing by more than 12% and by 6% respectively.
