Explore the future of plastics recycling at AMI’s Plastics Recycling World Expos Europe


The Plastics Recycling World Expo Europe is taking place at the Brussels Expo in Belgium on 11-12 September 2024. Returning for the fourth time, this free-to-attend expo and conference brings together industry leaders, experts and enthusiasts from around the globe for two days of learning, inspiration and networking opportunities.

The conference for the Plastics Recycling World Expo has just been announced and boasts a comprehensive agenda that covers the latest technological innovations, legislative changes and market drivers in the world of plastics recycling. From the diverse array of industry presentations, attendees can expect to learn about the latest advances in mechanical recycling machinery, recent innovations in solvent-based recycling technology, new information about major textiles recycling projects, emerging additives that promise to improve recyclate quality, and much more. The event offers a platform for industry leading organisations to share their knowledge and expertise, along with unique learning opportunities such as a training seminar on the complementary use of mechanical and chemical recycling.




In addition to industry talks, the event features multiple panels discussing key issues for the sector. With EPR schemes proliferating, PPWR changing the way we produce, consume, and recycle packaging, and the proposed ELV regulation looking to expand the scope of recycling efforts, this is a challenging time for the plastics industry but one that offers new opportunities for sustainable growth. Plastics Recycling World Expo will address the changing legislative landscape in a panel featuring EXPRA, EuRIC and more. Expanding on the theme of PPWR, a second panel featuring Berry Global, Avery Dennison and Flexible Packaging Europe will look at how legislation, social pressure and technology are changing the role of plastic packaging in Europe. A third discussion between Municipal Waste Europe, AMI and others will then examine the economic, logistical and technological requirements that are set to influence recycling rates over the coming decade.

The event’s keynote presentations also offer attendees an engaging experience with an in-house recycling expert from AMI delivering an overview of the latest advances in mechanical and chemical recycling on day one, and a public affairs manager from Nestlé discussing the multinational’s approach to packaging recycling on day two.

Beyond the theatre, attendees can take advantage of extensive networking opportunities in the exhibition hall, enabling them to forge new connections, exchange ideas, and collaborate on projects that drive positive change in the plastics recycling sector. AMI’s Plastics Recycling World Expo Europe offers a platform for education, collaboration, and innovation, empowering attendees to contribute to the development of sustainable practices and strategies that will shape the future of plastics recycling.

Co-located with the Compounding World Expo and Plastics Extrusion World Expo, attendees can choose sessions from any of the three featured conference theatres and explore over 170 exhibitors across the three focused expos.
