Event type
Paterna, Spain

AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, will hold the second edition of PLASREC, its International Seminar on Plastics Recycling, on 15 and 16 November 2023, where experts will discuss the importance of plastic waste recycling and recovery in a circular economy model that makes it possible to use different kinds of waste as new resources and sustainable raw materials. 

PLASREC first edition


Following its first edition, which was attended by more than 200 people, the plastics industry’s interest in improving its sustainability continues to grow, partly due to new legal requirements. In this seminar, the current challenges and opportunities relating to the management and recycling of plastic waste will be addressed.

On this occasion 26 speakers will talk about the leading topics affecting the sector in six sessions:

  1. Circular economy and plastics recycling
  2. Collection and sorting
  3. Mechanical and chemical recycling technologies
  4. Major recycling challenges
  5. Legislation, regulations, certification, and characterization
  6. Product recyclability.

The first session will focus on the relevance of these topics in the circular economy model through the participation of representatives of institutions such as the European Commission, Chemical Recycling Europe, ANARPLA and Plastics Europe.
