Vice-president of the European Parliament to open IdentiPlast
IdentiPlast 2011, Europe’s leading event about plastics waste management, will be officially opened by the vice-president of the European parliament, Alejo Vidal Quadras. The event, taking place on 3-4 October in Madrid, is part of PlasticsEurope’s drive to stop plastics from being wasted in landfills. Industry representatives and policy makers will discuss the efficiency of the EU’s legislative system, in particular the waste framework and the landfill directives. Divided in nine different sessions, the conference will also cover collection systems, market drivers to maximise value of collected plastics waste, technology innovations for waste management processing, and the development of a holistic approach for plastics waste management.
