REGISTER NOW: Petcore Europe Workshop on Opaque and Difficult to Recycle PET Containers - 2 February 2017 in Brussels

For industry practitioners only

Thursday, January 19, 2017 —

Petcore Europe invites to its ODR Workshop on Opaque and Difficult to Recycle PET Containers taking place on 2 February 2017 in Brussels, one day after the Petcore Europe Conference 2017. This Workshop is reserved for industry practitioners.

As PET is now expanding beyond transparent bottles and thermoforms into new applications such as milk and home care containers, Petcore Europe is keen to facilitate a dialogue across the value chain to find sustainable solutions for their recycling ability.

The Workshop will give an overview on the current status of markets, collection, sorting, best practices, applications and end markets in the field of opaque and difficult to recycle PET containers as well as an outline on the newly created Petcore Europe ODR Working Group.

At the end of the conference we will run an interactive session focusing on developing roadmaps for (new) r-PET applications.
