On 28 March 2017, the European Recycling Industries’ Confederation (EuRIC), organised its second Annual Conference. The full day event featured high-level policy makers and influential recycling industry leaders discussing key regulatory and economic topics for the European recycling sector. It offered unparalleled opportunities to learn about the latest policy developments that are expected to shape the European recycling sector in future.
The programme was very rich and included numerous valuable speakers, many from the Commission. At the end of each session the speakers also participated in lively and dynamic debates with the participants, primarily comprised of EuRIC members and recyclers from a broad array of sectors (metal, plastic, paper, etc.) from all over Europe.
ETRA was represented by Ettore Musacchi, President. He had the opportunity to discuss a variety of issues with many entrepreneurs from different sectors, all deeply concerned about common related issues, such as EPR, how to expand markets for Recycled Materials, how to generate the opportunities of the Circular Economy Package, and many others.
It was also the occasion for a further meeting with EuRIC and to continue the dialogue started over a year ago.
