CIMPA workshop “Innovative solutions for the circularity of plastic films”

2.6Mt of multilayers films waste are incinerated or landfilled every year due to a lack of sorting and recycling solutions. Consequently, more than 3B€ multilayer plastic films value is lost to the economy every year.

CIMPA is a research project supported by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 programme and it aims to develop a recycling value chain for post-industrial and post-consumer multilayer films (from food and agricultural applications).

Join this workshop to learn about the drivers for the circularity of multilayer plastic films and discover the innovative solutions that are being developed to create a circular economy in which plastic packaging never becomes waste.

This event represents a good opportunity to not only hear about the CIMPA project’s finding but also learn from different stakeholders working towards the circularity of plastic films.  

The workshop will take place on Wednesday 2 November 2022, at BluePoint Brussels (Bd Auguste Reyers 80, 1030 Brussels).
