    Great expectations - the global chemical recycling industry at the start of an eventful year as AMI launches subscription update offer

    AMI, Bristol, January 2023 – AMI’s second authoritative report on the global chemical recycling industry identifies a global chemical recycling input capacity of close to 1.2 million tonnes in 2022, excluding facilities processing post-use plastics into fuels.

    Having identified 2023 as a pivotal year for industry development, expectations are high for additional capacity coming onstream. Just looking at the last quarter of 2022 and the year 2023 a total of 22 companies globally announced plans to start commercial demonstration facilities and fully commercial chemical recycling facilities during this period, with a focus on Europe, followed by North America.

    In response to the continuing fast speed of industry developments AMI, from the end of Q1 onwards, will launch a subscription offer for the report, featuring quarterly updates of global developments in both quantitative and qualitative terms.

  • Mondi, Amcor, CEFLEX and Flexible Packaging Europe to participate at Recycling Flexible Packaging 2022 in Cologne, Germany

    Mondi, Amcor, CEFLEX and Flexible Packaging Europe to participate at Recycling Flexible Packaging 2022 in Cologne, Germany

    The agenda of the first edition of the Recycling Flexible Packaging event in Europe has been released. Taking place at the Pullman Cologne in Germany on 13-14 December 2022, this event explores the challenges and opportunities of creating circularity through increased recovery and recycling of ‘hard to recycle’ flexible packaging.

    With European legislation looking to specify targets for the proportion of plastic packaging waste to be recycled, with brand owners and retailers facing consumer pressure to use more recycled content in their packaging, a big drive towards a circular economy for flexible packaging is currently underway. There is renewed commitment to increasing investments with the aim of accelerating the transition towards circularity, to see higher recycling rates and increase the use of recycled content.

    The event provides anyone involved in recycling and circular economy developments for flexible packaging with a forum to focus on the challenges faced, and the solutions being worked on, through high level presentations, interactive sessions and extensive networking time.

    Key presentations include:

    • “How to achieve a circular economy for and with flexible packaging? An industry perspective”
      presented by Guido Aufdemkamp, Executive Director at Flexible Packaging Europe
    • “Circularity in plastic & paper: challenges & way forward”
      presented by Thomas Kahl, Head of Sustainable Packaging Solutions FMCG & Industrial Channels at Mondi Group
    • “The flexible packaging of tomorrow in a dynamic European legislative environment”
      presented by Delia Harabula, Sustainability Advocacy Lead EMEA at Amcor
    • “Creating and implementing a demand-driven circular economy for flexible packaging”
      presented by Graham Houlder, Project Coordinator and Managing Director at CEFLEX
    • “Understanding and improving recyclability of flexible packaging”
      presented by Sebastian Bidmon, Senior Consultant / Packaging Engineer at CIRCPACK by Veolia

     

    In addition to industry presentations, the event features an interactive panel discussion looking at creating breakthroughs in recycling flexible packaging: what needs to happen, how is it funded, and who leads, with panellists from Berry bpi Group, AMI, BASF and CEFLEX with more to be announced. And an ask the expert Q&A session looking at the legislative framework and market incentives that are facilitating and supporting a circular economy for flexible packaging with panellists from Amcor, Keller & Keckman and Borealis.

    Alongside the two-day agenda, this event offers plenty of face-to-face networking time, including an exhibition space, refreshment and lunch breaks and a drinks reception on the evening of the first day.
