Brussels, 11 May 2020 – The Polyolefin Circular Economy Platform (PCEP) is organising and hosting a training workshop about plastics and the European Union’s REACH legislation.
The workshop will cover how polymers are dealt with under REACH, as well as looking at two case studies – Nonylphenol Ethoxylate/Octylphenol Ethoxylate (the ‘original’ polymer of concern) and DEHP (the most common phthalate plasticiser in medical devices such as tubing and bags).
The meeting will also discuss how polymers and the plastics industry can best be adapted and transformed into a circular economy.
Venetia Spencer, PCEP Secretary General, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Keller & Heckman to organise this important training for our members. PCEP is a collaborative organisation committed to transforming the polyolefin industry from a linear to a circular one based on three principles: designing out waste; keeping products and materials in use; and recycling into high-quality new raw materials. This requires a systemic shift for our industry, but it is one that will build long-term resilience, generate new business and economic opportunities, and provide both environmental and societal benefits. This training will help our member companies manage this process of transformation.”
Spaces are still available on the workshop. Register by emailing Aurelie Van Bever firstname.lastname@example.org or calling on +32 (0)2 645 5082.
