The next joint „PVC and the Environment“ workshop hosted by AGPU and PlasticsEurope will take place in Bonn (Germany) on 12th January 2016. At the end of November, both the registration documents and the programme for the expert forum were sent out by e-mail. The response is huge and we have now already received more than 60 registrations from participants.
The winter workshop will feature a multitude of speakers focusing on current topics. The architect Katja Bernert (Mehler Texnologies), for example, will present the advantages of PVC-coated membranes in textile architecture. Ulrich Schlotter (BKV) will report on the discussion concerning the new German Law on Recyclable Materials (Wertstoffgesetz). Dr Berthold Schäfer (German Building Materials Association (BBS)) will explore the impact of the German Resource Efficiency Programme (ProgRess II) in the construction sector. Other speakers include Jan Mervart (DEZA), who will talk about DEHP and REACH; Dr Ivo Mersiowsky (Quiridium), who will explore the topic of eco-efficiency on the basis of PlasticsEurope eco-profiles, and Tilman Benzing (VCI), who will discuss the bioeconomy strategy of the German Federal Government.
