Increased Trading Opportunities for Recovered Paper in Eastern Europe Attract Industry-Leading Paper Recycling Conference

Paper Recycling Conference Europe 2013 comes to Warsaw, Poland from 30-31 October


For 2013, organisers The Recycling Today Media Group and Smithers Pira are taking the 9th annual edition of the Paper Recycling Conference Europe to the cultural and energetic city of Warsaw, Poland.

As one of the leading economies in Eastern Europe, and with recent recycle mill capacity additions to the country, Poland offers many opportunities for recovered paper sales, as well as growing supply capacity. Additionally, since the paper recovery rates in Eastern Europe are much lower than more developed regions of Europe, this region will be one of the sources of new material for the global recycled paper industry.

Taking place in this region of opportunity, the Paper Recycling Conference Europe 2013 will build on the growth of the Paper Recycling conference series. The dynamic conference format will bring together the supply and consuming sides of the paper and paper recycling industry to create an active dialogue and generate unrivalled trading opportunities for attendees.

The 2013 conference programme is being developed by an expert industry advisory committee, featuring representatives from Smurfit Kappa Group, Huhtamaki Paper Recycling, ACN Europe and other industry specialists. View Advisory Board here

The agenda in Warsaw will cover key issues facing the whole supply chain, with a strong emphasis on quality issues, plus trends in trading and exporting and challenges to securing venture capital funding. The programme will also include interactive panel discussions to help delegates debate, learn and strategise.

Confirmed topics on this year’s programme include:

  • The future of the European paper and recycling industry
  • Quality standards, issues and challenges for recyclers
  • Finance and funding opportunities for the paper and recycling industry
  • Mill Buyers’ perspectives
  • Trends and opportunities in plastics recycling markets
  • Optimising recycling operations
  • A discussion of the recycling industry from the traders’ perspective
