With the new European directive on plastic waste, increasing production costs, and the projected growth of the European PVC
market, the PVC
industry is facing a wide range of ongoing changes and developments. The industry will need to continue to adapt and work together, with representatives from the whole of the value chain involved, to meet and excel these targets.
These latest changes, as well as the excellent opportunities for the industry, will be addressed at our 1st edition of the European PVC Industry Summit
, taking place in London, England, on the 25th & 26th September, 2019.
Over the two days, key industry stakeholders will come together to discuss essential topics including:
Working Toward an Improved Circular Economy, Assessing Changes in Industry Regulations, New Business Ventures in PVC
and sustainability and waste management solutions.
The conference will also have a focus on progressing the European PVC Industry through acknowledging the current available technology and predicting the future outlooks of ongoing research in PVC products.
Join us in London for two days of unique business opportunities through networking, exchanging perspectives with other industry leaders - all in one exclusive venue.
