Brussels, 27 October 2020 – PCEP Secretary General Venetia Spencer will moderate a high-level panel discussion at the ICIS Polyolefins Virtual Conference next month on how value chain collaboration can enhance the public perception of plastic.
PCEP is a media partner for the free online event taking place between 2-5 November and featuring polyolefins industry leaders and experts. The live panel debate on 4 November will feature Dorothee Arns, General Director of the European Association of Chemical Distributors, and Sophie Poelmans, Global Marketing Manager of Solvay.
Spencer said: “PCEP’s goal is to transform the entire polyolefin system from a linear to a circular one by bringing together organisations from every point in the polyolefin chain: brand owners, retailers, waste management organisations, recyclers, converters, producers and everyone else. Only through dialogue and collaboration across the whole sector – such as is taking place at this conference – can we achieve our mission.”
She continued: “Our three strategic goals for polyolefins are to design out waste; to keep maximum products and material in use for as long as possible; and then to recycle them into high-quality new raw material. Achieving these three goals will both transform the polyolefin industry itself, as well as the public perception of our products.”
