A Look Ahead: Plastics Recycling Show Europe 2024

By June 13, 2024No Comments

Prevented Ocean Plastic™ will return to Plastics Recycling Show Europe next week.

Last year, Prevented Ocean Plastic’s debut as exhibitors at PRSE was a great success. This year Prevented Ocean Plastic™ Founder and Director Raffi Schieir will be joined by Commercial Lead Ben Tingley, Recycling Specialist & Turkish Procurement Manager Elif Guray Kayaduman, and Social Media & Events Lead Melisa Kumas, to talk to businesses and brands about the progress of the Prevented Ocean Plastic™ programme.

The team will return with more material options to discuss with potential customers too. Launched at the end of last year with Spectra Packaging, Prevented Ocean Plastic™ now offers rPP and rHDPE options in addition to our established rPET solution, creating more opportunities for people to make a better plastic choice.

There will also be news to share on our social impact ambitions. Prevented Ocean Plastic™ launched the 25 by 2025 initiative on World Oceans Day 2023 and this year, as a midway mission update, we can reveal that seven new collection centres are now open in South East Asia, creating over 200 jobs. The infrastructure expansion has also resulted in increased capacity of 1500 tonnes of additional plastic being redirected per month.

PRSE is also host to the Plastics Recycing Awards Europe. These awards recognise and celebrate achievement throughout the scope of the European plastics recycling industry. The awards offer an insight into current developments in recycled material usage, product design and innovative manufacturing. For the second year in a row Raffi Schieir is a finalist for Plastics Recycling Ambassador of the Year.

All the award finalists will be featured in a dedicated area at the show. The lucky winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on the second day of the event.
