Responding to member concerns and discussions RECOUP have expanded their annual conference to include a further breakout session on films, pouches and flexibles.
The session, which is due to be chaired by Mike Baxter, RPC BPI Recycled Products, will provide a platform whereby the industry can discuss and share information as well as seek solutions to the issue.
Mike Baxter commented “RPC-BPI Recycled Products are, once again, proud to sponsor the annual RECOUP conference and I am particularly looking forward to the discussions in the Films, Pouches and Flexibles session which I am chairing. This year’s event has more relevance than ever to all stakeholders, we face an unprecedented raft of new Regulations and Legislation which will dramatically change the face of our industry and how we all operate. Everyone in our sector – recyclers, collectors, Local Authorities, brands and retailers will have to establish new and more co-operative business relationships if we, as an Industry, are to rise to the challenge of issues such as EPR, CE, and higher targets. This year’s RECOUP conference will provide this platform.”
The Conference remains one of the not to be missed events in the plastics recycling event calendar and is sure to have ‘something for everyone’ in its varied content. RECOUP, CEO, Stuart Foster, said that “there promises to be some interesting and varied debate around plastic resources and recycling. RECOUP strives to ensure plastics has a successful future as a sustainable and recyclable resource and the Conference provides a valuable vehicle to discuss the issues the sector is facing.”
RECOUP, to assist with cross sector collaboration, will be bringing together the whole of the plastics recycling supply chain in their annual Conference. Whilst the event does not shy away from tackling the difficult questions that are likely to affect the future of plastics recycling it also seeks to share best practice and provides an invaluable networking opportunity for the benefit of anyone involved with or allied to the plastic recycling industry.
The RECOUP Plastics Recycling Conference will be held at KingsGate Conference Centre, Peterborough on 27th September 2018 and is open for registration with delegate and exhibitor packages.
