4 November 14:00 - 15:00Digital event

Are the several perspectives of packaging recyclability all really on board? Join in from wherever you are and let the speakers guide you through the essential aspects of recyclable packaging that need to be considered through the entire end to end process when designing solutions for the circular economy:

  • Cristina Lugli (Ecol Studio SpA) is going to introduce you into the technical matters of recyclability and cellulose-based materials.
  • Ulf Tillman (RDM Group) will be voicing the industry's perspective by focusing on the implications of recycling paper and board and the added value it creates along the supply chain.
  • Finally, Francesca Mostardini (Pack-co) will talk about the ongoing shift in packaging to design for recycling and the challenges for producers and consumers in managing the end-of-life of packaging responsibly.

As per usual, we will finish off with an open Q&A session. Tune-in from wherever you are to hear member stories, learn and connect!
