Design for Recycling

Conference Conference is postponed. New date will be given soon. Hotel Airport Okęcie Warsaw


"Plastics processing is one of the most important branches of industry in Poland. The demand for plastics resulted in increase of its production by over 80% in the last eight years in the entire sector.
The growing scale of plastics use is an ecological challenge for producers and consumers, forcing development in the field of recycling and changes in regulations.
Our conference will be a summary of forthcoming changes in legislation and an answer to a number of questions related to the design of packaging using recycled material." 

Mariusz Musiał, Country Manager of ALPLA Poland
