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.

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

Who should join?

  • Brand owners
  • Plastic packaging designers
  • Recyclers
