INVITATION: Design for Recyclability Workshop - 6 Oct. 2017

Learn & contribute to the current recycling challenges faced by the industry

Thursday, June 29, 2017 — 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.

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.

 

Who should join?

  • Brand owners
  • Plastic packaging designers
  • Recyclers
  • Stakeholders

 

During the workshop, participants will gain an insight on the impact of packaging design on recyclability. Other topics such as collection, sorting & different recycling processes will be discussed within the breakout sessions.
