The summit, ‘Steel Packaging - Green Solutions for Central Europe 2015’, will be held at the Warsaw Marriot hotel on October 8, 2015, followed by a tour of the ArcelorMittal Warszawa steel manufacturing plant.
“The Green Solutions 2015 summit will be an opportunity for policy makers, value chain partners and steel producers to present strategies, exchange ideas and communicate a vision for the future of steel as a sustainable packaging solution in a circular economic system,” said Dr Ulrich Roeske, president, APEAL.
Alexander Mohr, secretary general, APEAL, will talk about waste and the EU Circular Economy at the event.
He said the scrapping of the Circular Economy Package earlier this year by the EU Commission was seen by many, including APEAL, as a disappointment. ‘But, there are promising signs a new drafted proposal will be issued in the autumn that will provide ambitious recycling targets necessary for pushing Europe towards a circular economy’.
The first event by APEAL took place in 2011 at the US Steel Košice plant in Slovakia.
