INVITATION REMINDER - Petcore Europe organises Workshop on Recycling Rigid PET Thermoforms

How can the industry work together and find solutions to make PET thermoforms the best recyclable thermoformed packaging in its category?



The recycling of PET is a success story and gives all PET packaging a good reputation in the market as well as at governmental organisations, the European institutions and NGOs. The recycling of PET Thermoforms is gaining attention as it is not as easy as for the PET bottles.

Therefore, Petcore Europe kindly invites you to a European Workshop on the Recycling of Rigid PET Thermoforms on 11 March 2015 in Brussels. Please note that this event is by invitation only and free of charge.

Our workshop brings together PET producers, converters, users, recyclers, technology providers and collection agencies in order to work together on improving the recycling of PET packaging through the whole value chain. This event is an opportunity to raise awareness, share knowledge, identify best practices, initiate new demonstration projects and most of all to create a technical platform to proceed along this path.
