The PRE PVC stand was located in the Waste and Recycling sector at the Pollutec Fair which was visited by around 30 000 people. The PVC WG members involved in the project were presenting videos, samples and products made of recycled PVC. The Pollutec 2013 was a successful event which aimed at raising awareness about PVC recycling and plastics recyclers in France.

PRE & VinylPlus undertake actions in order to raise the awareness about the PVC plastics recycling and to challenge a more efficient control and usage of PVC during the whole life cycle of the material. Their aim is as well to influence an increase in collection rates and therefore recycling.

Organisers of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe exhibition and conference have announced that the event will move to the new venue of the RAI Amsterdam in The Netherlands and be held on the 29-30 March 2017.

Europe‘s metals, steel, paper, and plastics recyclers industries are united in calling for a harmonised method to measure recycling rates at input into the 'final recycling process', so as to promote material recovery and thus quality recycling. We support the European Commission and European Parliament proposals on this subject.
