After two years of cancellations due to COVID, EuRIC is delighted to announce that the European Recycling Conference (ERC) is back! The ERC is organised in close cooperation with the Spanish Recycling Federation FER and will take place on (14)15 June 2022 at IFEMA in Madrid. The 4th edition of the ERC will bring together top-level Executives from companies, Federations’ leaders and officials from EU institutions, offer unique networking opportunities and provide you with the latest regulatory and business developments at European level and beyond.
What you get, who you meet:
The program features both keynote interventions about the latest policy developments (revision of the waste shipment regulation, development of end-of-waste criteria) and sessions dedicated to the most recycled and traded streams (metals, paper, tyres, textiles, plastics, etc.) and EU-funded project to recycle multilayer plastics (CIMPA)!
Co-organised with FER, the Spanish Recycling Federation, the ERC will gather leading recycling companies active in Spain. On top, the ERC will be an integral part of the International Recycling and Recovery Trade Fair in Madrid attracting over 10 000 visitors and 200 exhibition stands.
