Join us for the presentation of the EU-funded Polymark project completion and gain an insight into a new technology enabling the identification and sorting of polymers, including PET, in the high-value plastics waste stream.

The event will take place on 15 March 2017, 10.00 - 12.30, at the Petcore Europe offices in Brussels (Avenue de Cortenbergh 71, 1000 Brussels), followed by a networking lunch.

Petcore Europe has established its PET Thermoforms Working Group in June 2015, following a Workshop on Recycling PET Thermoforms in March 2015. It comprises 40 companies and organisations including key players from industry and waste management. The goal is to increase the market share of PET in thermoforms in Europe by providing sustainable and reliable end-of-life solutions for their effective recycling.

The organisers of the PRS Europe event, Crain Communications Ltd and the Plastics Recyclers Europe Association, are pleased to announce the return of PRS Europe. The show will take place at the RAI in Amsterdam on the 29 - 30 March 2017.

The Plastics Recycling Show (PRS) will feature a pan European exhibition and conference stream designed specifically for the plastics recycling industry. The event will bring together key players from the plastics and recycling sectors in order to learn, network and capitalise on the business opportunities plastic recycling offers.

We like to thank you all, our Petcore Europe members and partners, for your confidence and support, and look forward to continue working with you in the New Year.
