A Look Ahead: Prevented Ocean Plastic at Plastics Recycling Europe 2023

By May 4, 2023June 7th, 2023No Comments

Prevented Ocean Plastic will be at Plastics Recycling Europe next week!

Although Prevented Ocean Plastic representatives have previously attended and spoken at the event, this year marks the first time they will have a dedicated booth presence. The booth will actually be their first at any trade show.

“We’re very excited for PRSE to be the site of our first trade show appearance,” says Social Media and Events Lead, Melisa Kumas, “The team are looking forward to meeting global thought leaders in recycling, as well as customers and suppliers, to demonstrate all that we can achieve together.”

The Plastics Recycling Show Europe take places at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre on May 10 and 11. The event covers all aspects of the recycling supply chain, and brings together key industry figures to address the latest opportunities and challenges that face the plastic recycling industry in Europe.

In addition to their appearance at the show, Prevented Ocean Plastic and Bantam UK Ltd. Director, Raffi Schieir, is one of six finalists in the Plastics Recycling Ambassador of the Year category at the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe. The awards recognise and celebrate achievement throughout the scope of the European plastics recycling industry, offering an insight into current developments in recycled material usage, product design, and innovative manufacturing.

“We all have a role to play in cultivating a true circular economy and encouraging people to choose recycled,” adds Bantam Materials UK Ltd. Director, Raffi Schieir, “This is what we do on a daily basis, so to be recognised for our work is a real honour. Just being at PRSE alongside these fine ambassadors is already a huge achievement in my book.”

The successful shortlisted finalists for 2023 will be on display in a special feature area at the Plastics Recycling Show Europe in May at the RAI in Amsterdam. The lucky winners will be announced at an awards ceremony during the event, which will be live-streamed for those who are unable to attend.

Prevented Ocean Plastic at Plastics Recycling Europe will be joined on their stand by representatives from Pretium, and will be exhibiting their solution at Stand S2 on May 10 and 11 at the RAI Amsterdam.
