nova Session “EU Circular Economy and Plastic Policy”
With considerable speed, the Juncker Commission has presented its Circular Economy Package and the corresponding plastics legislation was drafted quite quickly by the EU institutions. The content of the legislation has given ground to confusion and speculation by industry players. How binding are the provisions? Will there be any exceptions or special regulations for bio-based or biodegradable plastics? How will it influence the industry? Want to know what’s really going on with the new European plastics policy? Join our nova-Session! This is our opportunity to discuss with experts and a deeply involved Commission official. These presentations will give you the latest information to make sound decisions:
