Plastic Waste Recycling – Processing and new applications
Plastic Waste Recycling – Processing and new applications


International VDI Conference – Plastic Waste Recycling


October 21-22, 2014


Plastics recycling is widely accepted as a milestone on the road to zero plastics in landfilling. The international VDI conference Plastic Waste Recycling – Processing and new Applications – will cover available technologies to sort, process and transform plastic waste back into recycled plastic products. Expect discussions on reducing, reusing, recycling: How do plastics behave on different levels of the waste hierarchy, upcycling/downcycling: Does it exist at all? Get insights in new business models and means of an applications of recycled plastics.


International renowned experts will discuss the following topics:


  • EU Legislation: What do we have to expect from Brussels?
    Waste Framework Directive/Waste Hierarchy
    European Packaging Directive
    EU Vision of plastic waste treatment method
  • Overview on Plastics waste management in Europe – Chances and Challenges
