At the beginning of July, the AGPU member companies decided to change the name of the association from „Arbeitsgemeinschaft PVC und UMWELT e.V.“ to „VinylPlus Deutschland e.V.“, which will be implemented in 2021. The AGPU has been an associate member of VinylPlus® since 2017 and is closely linked to the European sustainability programme through various committees and a large number of projects. „The AGPU already stands for the sustainable development of the material PVC. We want to show this clear focus on the future issues of the society even more strongly through the renaming“, says AGPU Chairman Dr Oliver Mieden (Vinnolit).
Also on the agenda of the AGPU general assembly was the supplementary election of the board. With Jörg Frömming (Dekura), Volkmar Halbe (FEB), Roland Pietz (Evonik), Dr. Ingo Sartorius (PlasticsEurope Deutschland) and Thomas Zenger (Baerlocher), five recognized industry representatives joined the board.
