Speakers include Antti Peltomäki of the European Commission; David Berman of Veolia Group; Sandra Tostar of Volvo Car Corporation; Olivier Francois of Galloo Group; and Simon Francis Webb of Procter & Gamble.

They will showcase how economic and legislative developments are currently shaping the recycling sector. The main topic of debate will be how to achieve success all along the circular value chain.
