Plastics … the material everyone loves to hate!
It may divide opinion but plastics have an important role to play in today’s society. Many companies need to radically rethink how to integrate sustainability into their products and services … and a place to start is plastic pellets and preventing them being lost to the environment.
As well as the many environmental benefits, preventing pellet loss has many business benefits:
- Reputation: Protect your reputation by doing the right thing
- Cost and efficiency savings: Maximises your use of resources
- Regulatory compliance: Ensures regulatory compliance
Join us for the next PLASTICS netWORK event (register here) which will focus on this important topic. Find out more about how to prevent plastic pellet loss to the environment, the new PAS 510:2021 (the world’s first standard for preventing pellet loss) and how training and skills development can support your business in reducing your environmental impact.
We are also pleased to announce that Sonia Fourie from Sealed Air will be presenting a case study on how they have focused on preventing pellet loss … and the benefits they have seen.
This informal network brings together experience and knowledge from across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and the Black Country and provide opportunities for business networking and knowledge transfer on issues such as sustainability, legislation, the environment and skills gaps.
Whether you are a material supplier, processor, packaging manufacturer or use plastics in your products or processes, then the PLASTICS netWORK is for you. With a myriad of legislation, consumer campaigns, regulations and industry initiatives, this virtual event will help you to navigate this confusing maze and show how we can all work together to support this key industry.
This event is being hosted on the Remo platform and a link to join will be emailed out beforehand.
The PLASTICS netWORK is run by PS Partnerships, in collaboration with The Polymer Training and Innovation Centre and CREST
CREST (ESBRC project) is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
