AGPU will again run a number of different communication projects in cooperation with VinylPlus in 2017. At the end of last year, the PVC experts proposed three projects: creating and publishing articles on the topic of Green Public Procurement, organising and running a dialogue event with stakeholders on the topic of „sustainable development with PVC“ and continuing the successful „PVC Recyclers Meet PVC Processors“ series of events in cooperation with their partners from “Aktion PVC Recycling” campaign run by the German Association for the Recycling of PVC Floor Coverings (AgPR), ESWA/Roofcollect and Rewindo.
The joint project on „Guidelines on Recycling in Accordance with Waste Law and REACH“ will continue also in 2017. The leading body in this joint project is the Beteiligungs- und Kunststoffverwertungsgesellschaft mbH (BKV) with support from PlasticsEurope, AGPU, VinylPlus, the German Association of the Plastics Converters (GKV), the Qualitätsverband Kunststofferzeugnisse (QKE) and other stakeholders. AGPU coordinates the PVC topics involved in this project in its extended Recycling Working Group.
