Denuo and essenscia PolyMatters kindly invite you on Tuesday 27 September 2022 for their third Plastic Matters event at BluePoint Brussels.
The focus of this edition is automotive. We will not only look into the recycling of plastics from automotive but also the use of recycled plastics into automotive applications. Representatives of the various parties in the plastics value chain will share their insights : the management body for end-of-life vehicles, the European Recycling Industries’ Confederation (EURIC), recycling companies specialised in the recycling of end-of-life vehicles, suppliers to the automotive industry and the automotive industry itself. We also want to collect your views during a brainstorming session to generate new ideas to promote the circularity of cars.
Members of Denuo and essenscia PolyMatters are welcome to attend this free networking event.
The language of communication during this event is English.
