The British Plastics Federation has launched Replast 2013, its sixth annual plastics recycling conference. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Driving Manufacturing Using Recycled Plastics’ and the association says the conference will examine how to increase the size of the UK plastics recycling industry and its market.
Replast 2013 will take place on 6th November 2013 at the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining in London. The BPF says the conference will give delegates the opportunity to discuss the essential issues facing the industry in the UK and to network with their peers.
Speakers from companies including John Lewis and Closed Loop Recycling are set to explore topics ranging from the Coalition government's policy on waste management to a retailers view on plastics recycling. There will also be the chance for delegates to listen to panel debates and to hear the results of a survey into why some companies find it difficult to use recycled plastics.
There will also be a number of table -top exhibition sites available for companies to hire to feature relevant technology, materials, products and services.
The BPF says the conference will be of major interest to all members of the plastics industry with an involvement in plastics recycling, practitioners and users.
