Plastic Recycling in Reality

Don’t let the value go to waste

Don't discard your opportunities - find out how to use recycled materials properly. How can we create a new life for previously used materials? How can garbage and waste become valuable commodities?

Join us during a full day to get a unique opportunity to see what can be done to make use of the plastics in the waste streams and make plastic a part of saving our future, contributing to  important work on sustainability.

During this day, the focus is on how plastic can be recycled and processed into new raw materials. The seminar offers a unique opportunity to deepen your knowledge on how recycling of plastic works in everyday life and how waste products can retain its value and become valuable raw material for another company.

The seminar is organised by Packbridge, in collaboration with Scanfill AB, on May 9th 2019 in Ystad, Sweden.

The day will end with a “hands-on experience” via a guided tour at Scanfill and the Polykemi Group.
