Abstract

The extensive and expanding use of plastic material in the Italian agriculture for several diversified application results in increased accumulation of plastic waste in rural areas. In the present paper, an analysis of the technical solutions for the management of agricultural plastic waste is presented. The current practices adopted by Farmers consist, unfortunately, in a mismanagement of the plastic material, that is abandoned or buried in open fields or burnt in a not controlled way,with heavy environmental consequences and a loss of material and energy. In the second part of the paper, the main results of a scientific project financed by the EU, aimed at the labelling of agricultural plasticwaste stream,will be presented.
