2022 PET Chemical Recycling: Depolymerization Forum

In 2019, Petcore Europe launched the PET Depolymerisation Recycling working group - with initial engagement by companies involved in the development of new and innovative processes to recycle PET and Polyester waste by depolymerization and reusing its monomer constituents.


Registration: The Forum will be open for members and non-members of Petcore Europe, with different participation fees. Registration is now open.
