LEATHERHEAD, England--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Organisers of the Paper Recycling Conference Europe, are delighted to announce the agenda for 2013. It is positioned to provide a forum for the entire industry to network and share ideas while gaining insight into key industry drivers from the perspectives of the consuming and supply side of the market.
Statistics highlighted in reports from the European Recovered Paper Council show that fibre was collected and recycled an average of 3.5 times in 2012, with a worldwide average of 2.4 times. Figures showed that Europe recycled 71.7% of its paper in 2012, allowing us to indulge in the fact that paper recycling as an industry truly is ‘made in Europe.’ Given that, this will be an insightful year to join the discussions at the Paper Recycling Conference, which is equipped to address quality challenges, trading issues and provide updates on plastics recycling trends.
The conference opens with an executive session featuring leaders of paper and recycling companies, including DS Smith and Stora Enso, plus forecasts from Smithers Pira’s expert consultant Graham Moore. Each speaker will give insight into where he or she predicts the industry will be in 5-10 years and how these individuals are trying to position their companies for changes they see to be forthcoming.
The two-day agenda, including the popular mill buyers session chaired by Bill Moore and featuring panellists from Hamburger Recycling Group, Sonoco-Alcore, Utzenstorf Papier and Kimberly-Clarke Europe, fosters a better exchange of information and ideas in the buying and selling process. The conference provides a unique focus on how to optimise production and re-tool recycling centres for the future, with emphasis on improving quality and efficiency of operations.
An additional focus on the programme will be the trends, challenges and opportunities in plastics recycling, incorporating growth movements in film plastics, presented by representatives from ALBA Group, ACN Europe, DELA and RELUX Kunststoffe.
The conference programme is complemented by a table-top exhibition area, the main destination for the extended networking breaks, ensuring attendees make the most of their time in Warsaw, exchanging ideas and contacts with the recycling supply chain.
