Largest PRSE to date set for Amsterdam in November

ORGANISERS of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe (PRSE) have confirmed the event is moving to a larger hall this year to accommodate demand for a larger exhibition and conference space.

The pan-European event dedicated to plastics recycling returns to the RAI Amsterdam on 4-5 November, with online visitor registration now open at:

The free-to-attend exhibition is aimed at plastics recycling professionals and brings together representatives from the plastics and recycling sectors to showcase the latest technology, share best practice, network and do business.

More than 150 companies will be exhibiting at the largest PRSE show to date. The line-up includes Berry Bpi Group, EREMA, FIMIC, Krauss Maffei, Lindner Recyclingtech, LyondellBasell, NextChem, Pellenc ST, GmbH, Polyloop, Starlinger, Suez, Tomra Sorting and Veolia.

The latest trends in the plastics recycling sector will also be explored during the two-day conference, which brings together political leaders, major brands, recyclers and the plastics recycling and manufacturing industry.

The opening conference session will update delegates on the latest political and legislative developments in plastics recycling in Europe, while materials focus sessions on the first day will explore the challenges and opportunities for mechanical recycling, covering PET, PVC and technical plastics.

The second day’s opening conference session is Closing the Circle with RecyClass and is followed by polyolefin material focus sessions which will examine polyolefin waste streams including high- and low-density polyethylene (LDPE and HDPE). The conference concludes with a final session looking at polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene (PS) recycling.

The winners of the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe 2021 will be announced at the event on 5 November, with all 55 finalists set to be showcased in the exhibition, as will the winners of the 2020 awards, which were presented virtually.

Ton Emans, Plastics Recyclers Europe president, said, “The fifth edition of the of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe will take place more than two years after our last in-person event in 2019. The pandemic has been a very challenging time for everyone, but also a period of unprecedented change. PRSE is a must-visit event to stay up to date with the latest developments and gain the insights into the legislative landscape of plastics recycling in Europe.”

Matt Barber, PRSE event director at Crain Communications, added, “PRSE has cemented its position as the focal point for plastics recycling in Europe. By moving to Hall 12 at the RAI this year, we have been able to accommodate demand for more exhibition space from more exhibitors and expand the floorplan to over 8,000 square metres.”
