The Sustainable Plastic Recycling in Mongolia (SPRIM) project, funded by the European Union’s SWITCH-Asia program, is being implemented by Caritas Czech Republic in Mongolia along with project partners Environment and Security Center of Mongolia, Ecosoum, Mongolian Sustainable Development Bridge, and T.G. Masaryk Water Research Institute since 2020. The SPRIM project is promoting sustainable production and consumption patterns by supporting plastic recycling MSMEs to transition to more environmentally friendly practices. This includes supporting them to have a sufficient secondary raw material supply by establishing an efficient system to sort and collect plastic waste and creating an enabling legal environment, to strengthen their organizational capacity to ensure their sustainable operation.
