PTS Paper & Board Symposium 2016

The PTS Paper & Board Symposium (September 6-7, 2016 at Leonardo Royal Hotel in Munich) will be one of the highlights among the events offered to paper producers and converters this autumn. The paper industry is in a period of transition. This makes it particularly important to keep abreast of the sector’s latest developments and innovations.

Our sector is faced with a multitude of different challenges and tasks: The Internet of Things is changing the whole face of our value chain and the future of paper both as consumer good and material needs to be redefined. We are all directly affected by these developments, and need to act to innovatively shape our sector’s future.

Focus will be on five sessions:

Session 1: Shaping the future with paperbased products
Session 2: Printing in the digitised future
Session 3: Food Packaging: Safety first!
Session 4: Industry 4.0: BEYOND automation TOWARDS digitization
Session 5: Innovative technologies and products in the manufacturing of paper and board

The PTS Paper & Board Symposium 2016 will be supported by partners from the trade associations of paper and board producers and converters VDP, HPV and WPV, as well as by the supplier companies represented by the Paper Technology Research Association (FPT).

CEPI, in collaboration with the Association of Polish Papermakers and the Capital City of Warsaw Municipal Office is organising a seminar entitled ‘Circular Economy – How to improve paper collection in Poland’ at the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw.

Resource Efficiency is high on the European agenda. Turning waste into a raw material for the European industry is one important goal of the European resource efficiency and raw materials policies. With the IMPACT initiative, the European Paper Industry and more than 20 partners from research, public authorities and companies commit to support this goal by sharing knowledge and best practices in the field of separate paper collection. As the European Commission is discussing new targets on waste, Poland is implementing its 2013 law on the cleanliness and tidiness of the communities.

At this workshop, implementation of waste legislation and best practice examples from other European countries will be presented. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss with the specialists from the local authorities and from the paper industry on further improving the separate collection of paper at the local level. On the second day, participants will also have the opportunity to discover in practice, how new paper products from their everyday life are produced from the collected waste.

At the event several countries will present their good practices in paper recycling and improvement to paper recycling rates. See the full programme.

The seminar was followed by a visit to the Stora Enso paper mill in Ostroleka the next day. Preferable rates for hotel rooms have been negotiated with the Hotel.

The registration deadline has been reached.
