INGEDE Symposium 2019

30 Years of INGEDE

Paper instead of plastic?
The new packaging regulation at the INGEDE Symposium

Breakthroughs in self-adhesive labels and UV-curable inks, requirements for sustainable books

INGEDE invited for the 28th INGEDE Symposium on 13 February 2019 at Haus der Bayerischen Wirtschaft in Munich – and more than 100 guests came to listen to breakthroughds in the context of paper recycling and other exiting presentations.

More information on the symposium and on the presentations is available on request.

The world of paper recycling and deinking meets in Munich every year: The INGEDE Symposium is the only international meeting covering all aspects from recyclability and paper recovery to the treatment of paper for recycling. With more white packaging entering the recycling stream, these fibres become increasingly interesting for deinkers: How can the paper industry benefit from the new packing legislation? is one of the questions to be answered.

At the symposium, INGEDE was even more focusing on the needs and interests of all members of the paper chain – in the morning, a plenary session with a keynote about the future of books and breakthroughs in adhesive applications and UV inks covered the whole paper value chain. Then, two parallel sessions offered more insight into current issues in the raw material regarding collection, advanced sorting, and inspection of paper for recycling; as well as into the recyclability of different printing 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!
