One month to go - do not miss your chance and sign up now for Petcore Europe - Annual Conference 2024.


The conference, being held in Brussels from 7-8 February 2024, will take place against the background of the finalisation of the EU’s landmark Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR). Day One will consider the impact that the regulation will have on businesses operating both upstream and downstream, with industry experts and representatives from the European Commission.


This year Petcore Europe will gather three DGs: DG SANTE, DG GROW & DG ENV, namelyBastiaan Schupp - Legislative Officer – Food Contact Materials for the European Commission (DG Health and Food Safety), Stefano Soro - Head of Unit - Green and Circular Economy at European Commission (DG GROW) and Wolfgang Trunk - Policy Officer at European Commission (DG ENVIRONMENT) are coming together to debate and explore market developments shaping the sector.


The agenda will cover reams of legislation and impending regulation, and address the challenges and opportunities facing those in the PET industry. Petcore Europe is launching a new working group, Advocacy, to cope with these challenges. The President of Petcore Europe, Antonello Ciotti, explains that the association has “a lot to say” on these issues and adds that Petcore Europe needs to be more agile in promoting its ideas when it has a common position among all its members.


On the Day One, we also unveil the latest updates on textile and our ongoing PET Communications Campaign 2024. “Communication is important, and we must show how the PET bottle is being recycled,” says Antonello. “It can only be done if the consumer does the first step. In countries without deposits, we do campaigns to increase the consumer’s understanding that recycling starts with them. The value of rPET is important and there must be an incentive for companies to start collecting.”


During the Day Two the experts from the entire PET value chain will share their updates on LCA, Reuse, Labels and other insightful topics, covering all the challenges and innovations, embraced by Petcore Europe Technical WGs throughout 2023.

About Petcore Europe

Petcore Europe is the association representing the complete PET value chain in Europe since 1993.

Its mission is to ensure that the entire PET industry is well aligned to enhance its value and sustainable growth, to represent the PET industry before the European institutions and other stakeholders, to ensure that PET is positioned as an outstanding packaging material and recognised as environmentally sound, to support and validate innovative packaging solutions from a recycling perspective, and to work with all interested parties to ensure a continuous increase of PET post-consumer collection and recycling.

PET (PolyEthylene Terephthalate) is a strong but lightweight form of polyester. It is used to make containers for soft drinks, juices, drinks, water, edible oil, fresh food and dairy as well as household cleaners and other non-food applications. PET bottles and food containers, such as sheets and trays are perfectly recyclable while they help to reduce CO2 emissions and food waste.
