Let’s work together on plastics packaging design!

Plastics Recycling Conference - Plastics Recyclers’ Europe platform for recyclability assessment - programme released

Plastics Recycling Conference will take place on 8 May 2014 at the Interpack Fair in Duesseldorf. The conference will gather the worlds of plastics recyclers, plastics packaging producers, brand owners and EU policy makers. Representatives of European Commission and entrepreneurs will debate and discuss pressing issues within plastics packaging design and its recycling.

Today, products are very often designed without any real knowledge of their actual recyclability. However, design of a packaging has a detrimental impact on the recycling. Consequently, the first step in minimalizing a negative impact of a product on the environment shall be its design.
During the Recycling Conference in Düsseldorf Plastics Recyclers Europe will launch RecyClass, a platform for recyclability assessment, which is the key step in ensuring better recycling of plastic packaging. This tool will help packaging designers to find the correct way to approach and evaluate their new products.
