Plastics Waste: a Key Component of a Circular Economy
IdentiPlast - the International Conference on Collection, Sorting and Recycling of Plastics – provides the world’s most comprehensive platform on the exchange of know-how between the plastics industry, regulators, academia and waste management practitioners from around the globe. This year’s conference focuses on the particular challenges presented by the Circular Economy to "new” European member states and other countries in the process of modernising their waste management infrastructure. Through the sharing of best practice the intent is accelerate the drive to efficient waste management and a more Circular Economy.
The venue is set for Vienna which is ideally placed in bringing together EU officials and regional players in the fields of collection, sorting, recycling and recovery of plastics from Europe and the rest of the world.

Since the organisation of the first IdentiPlast conference in 1997 (Brussels), PlasticsEurope has been a leader in creating an environment for the sharing of best practice and knowledge in the management of plastics through its life cycle at capital city venues around Europe: London, Paris, Brussels, Madrid, Warsaw or Rome and for 2017 in Vienna.
