"Circular Economy for Flexible Packaging"
10 a.m. (Eastern)
Workstream Consultant, CEFLEX
CEFLEX: A European consortium driving the circular economy for flexible packaging through full value chain collaboration.
Recycling is key to realizing the Circular Economy for plastic packaging. But this needs to be done with a favorable environmental footprint and deliver valuable secondary materials. The CEFLEX collaboration of over 160 companies and associations in Europe is steadily working out how and when to recycle flexible packaging to ensure the resulting Circular Economy is a sustainable one for all parts of the value chain.
The presentation will share insight into how what is non-recyclable today can be recycled tomorrow through:
-packaging and system redesign
-a new quality recycling process for boosting value and keeping materials in the economy
-new enabling technologies to recycle more and/or produce better quality of secondary materials.
