32 Years of INGEDE

Thank you for joining us online for this year’s INGEDE Symposium!

Paper has to be recyclable:
About ecolabels, availability of paper for recycling, and the sustainability of printed products at the INGEDE Symposium

More packaging, less graphic paper, the new EU Ecolabel, and sustainable books

INGEDE invited you for the 30th INGEDE Symposium on 2 March 2021 online – and more guests than ever joined to listen to recent achievements in the context of paper recycling and other exiting presentations.

The world of paper recycling and deinking meets at INGEDE every year: The INGEDE Symposium is the only annual international conference covering all aspects from paper product recyclability and paper recovery to the treatment of paper for recycling. This year everything will be presented online.

At the symposium, INGEDE will be focusing on the needs and interests of all members of the paper chain – with a keynote about sustainability in book printing. A presentation on the new European Ecolabel will address the whole paper value chain. We will also offer more insight into current issues in the raw material regarding collection, advanced sorting, and trading of paper for recycling; as well as into the recyclability of different printed products and how to deal with them in the deinking process, the challenges of newer printing processes and different kinds of certification of printed products.

Reaching a higher level in paper recycling – Together chances and challenges can be met!

And, remember, in case of any questions don’t hesitate to contact INGEDE!
