Key Focuses and Themes

At the Packaging and Converting Executive Forum 2019, one of the key focuses is sustainability and plastics. As packaging, sustainability and the environment become a big factor in the engineering of a product, to the point of restricting certain types of materials, PACE Europe intends to analyse and gather ideas to help provide solutions to packaging experts who have asked these questions.

One of the main themes of the conference and will be opening the Conference understanding the Single Use of Plastics proposal of Directive that will be taking place in 2022. Here Hans Van Bochove will be speaking about the key challenges and

  • Understanding the meaning of this new directive and focusing on what this single use means for brands 
  • Clarifying clauses to understand what exact kinds of plastics (such as baby food and medical nutrition products) come under this law and out of scope to successfully implement this law.
  • Exploring countries that will implement this law sooner rather than later (France will begin to  implement in 2019) and what preparations will need to be implemented
  • Figuring how the EU SUP regulation will change the way we use plastics in the future and what pitfalls and benefits needed to be aware of

Join the conference to hear what Phillips, Heineken, Mars Food, Danone, McBride Consumer Goods, Sanofi and many more brands are doing at the moment to overcome any challenges.
