Private waste and resources management companies produce high quality materials for re-injection into the economy. The industry has made the transition from waste to resource managers, thereby providing services going beyond mere end-of-pipe solutions. As professionals, the companies invest and are active across the entire value chain: they cooperate with product designers, they optimise waste collection and sorting in order to reprocess waste into high quality raw materials. In doing so, they play a key role in achieving the best economic and environmental outcomes. 

After welcoming words by the new FEAD President, Jean-Marc Boursier, the conference will showcase examples of private-sector-led innovation that help harness the potential of the circular economy, followed by a panel debate with distinguished guests from the European institutions, business and academia. After a short break, a special invitee will provide the audience with a future outlook of our sector followed by comments from the panel.
