Workshops on the subject of Design for Recycling

At our in-house training events for the fields of “packaging development and marketing”, you will obtain comprehensive insights into how packages are sorted and recycled. Together with our engineers, and duly referenced to your packages with appropriate practical examples, the design-for-recycling criteria for a sustainable package are explained, mapping out how they influence sortability and recyclability. The workshop is rounded off by a visit to a sorting plant or a facility for further plastics processing, and gives you valuable insights into the modern-day closed-cycle economy.

We will be pleased to put together for you an individualized agenda, tailored to your own packaging portfolio and your intended participants.
