Workshop Design for Recyclability - A key to reach the recycling targets

Friday, October 6, 2017 -
10:00 to 15:00

Plastics Recyclers Europe, invites you to the Workshop Design for Recyclability - A key to reach the recycling targets on 6 October at the Vleva Conference Centre in Brussels. The workshop will feature a common introduction to the event and a key note speech from DG Environment. Afterwards, the participants will be divided into 4 breakout sessions. Please see the agenda.

Design plays an important role when recycling a package. Plastic packaging does not begin with collection but design. Careless design often leads to leftover residue in emptied packages. Ill-prepared combinations of polymers and materials in packaging can create incompatibilities with efficient recycling processes. During the workshop, participants will gain an insight into the impact of packaging design on recyclability. Other topics such as collection, sorting & different recycling processes will also be discussed.

Who should join?

  • Brand owners
  • Plastic packaging designers

Places are limited and an online registration is necessary in order to participate. Please register to one of the Breakout session s that is of most interest to you.
