International examples and best practice

International Recycling Forum Wiesbaden


The 3rd International Recycling Forum in Wiesbaden is already history. The impressions remain and enrich the participants for a while! Around 150 participants from 22 countries accepted the invitation to Wiesbaden and experienced two informative days on an international level. The industry representatives present exchanged experiences on the development of plastics recycling and cultivated their network.

"At this event one could experience optimistic and innovative thinking. This is exactly what we need to implement a closed raw material cycle. This applies to Europe as well as worldwide, where Canada, New Zealand and South Africa are already part of our network and use best practices. Protecting the environment is both a global and a local task," said Peter Sundt, Secretary General of EPRO, the European association of plastics take-back and recycling operators.

RIGK and EPRO say "See you soon".

A new date for the 4th International Recycling Forum will be announced shortly.
