The Goliath or Nebuchadnezzar Amendment does not intend to make any prisonersĀ  …. no distinction between PE, PET, PEHD, recycled, virgin or bioplastics bottles.

This amendment will impact the fossil plastic and recycling plastic industry more heavily than the bioplastics industry.

Imagine the precedent that this will set in Europe.
