Fost Plus to present its vision of the circular economy at Empack Malines


The entire packaging industry sector will gather at Empack Malines on 27 and 28 October and Fost Plus will, of course, be there. With a stand providing an opportunity to meet the various stakeholders and partners and a presentation focusing on packaging recycling solutions, Fost Plus will engage in dialogue about the circular economy.

Fost Plus wants to assist packaging companies to optimise their packaging, with a view to optimising the packaging so that the materials from selective sorting can be recycled and then returned to the chain. The Green Dot eco-modulation is a financial incentive to promote a global approach to circular packaging.

In the ‘Groen Verpakken’ (Green Packaging) programme, Fost Plus explains its strategy to fulfil the sector's commitments on recycling packaging. The Design4Recycling approach offers a means of entering into dialogue with the various stakeholders and thus suggesting alternative packing solutions suitable for recycling and/or innovations with a view to improving recycling. Solutions are put forward for other types of packaging by creating or optimising collection and recycling channels. These various alternatives are made possible thanks to long-term contracts for thorough sorting and a high-quality recycling in Belgium. They will supplement this overall role as a catalyst for the household packaging circular economy.

Don’t miss the speech by Fost Plus at 10.45 am on the first day of this event. And be sure to visit the Fost Plus stand in the Partner Village.
