Petcore Europe 2022: “Reuse in focus, challenges & opportunities for the PET industry”

We are looking forward to meeting you all on the 25th MAY 2022!


As REUSE is a key topic in the European sustainability policy, Petcore Europe has started a reflection with its members on how REUSE can bring improvement to the PET industry and how this will integrate and modify the sector’s already developed infrastructure.

The EU Commission promotes the following hierarchy in its packaging policies: REDUCE consumption, REUSE and RECYCLE. Thus, REUSE is becoming a significant pillar to support the ultimate goal of the EU to be climate neutral by 2050, in parallel with the all-other related actions for PET bottle light weighting and recycling.

The objectives of this webinar are:

  • To communicate to the audience the PPWD measures across the EU,
  • To present the REUSE status and legislative developments across the EU Countries,
  • To share with the audience related activities of the industry,
  • To update the audience on REUSE best practices across the EU.
