Q&A SESSION WITH EXPERTS
Key Questions and Answers on packaging and the circular economy

12.00h – 14:00h

Participate live or send us your question through this form.
The world of Packaging is going through a time of conversion in which new concerns are emerging.
Questions such as: What implications will the Royal Decree on packaging and packaging waste and the Law on waste and contaminated soils have on the industry, what are the current alternatives and perspectives in the use of multilayers, what key aspects must be taken into account in food safety and quality control of new materials, etc.? These are part of the agenda of manufacturers, packers, distribution and other agents in the value chain.

To answer these and other questions, ITENE is organising a question and answer session on 24 November from 12:00 to 14:00 in collaboration with EMPACK, which will address the main doubts identified by its industry experts in their search for a balance between sustainability, safety and cost of packaging in the framework of the circular economy.
In addition, the session will feature the testimony of companies that will explain first-hand their success stories in the launch of new sustainable packaging or the adaptation of existing ones to this new context.

Attendees will be able to participate actively during the session or by sending their questions in advance through this form.
