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

07.02.2019 – INGEDE invites to the 28th INGEDE Symposium on 13 February 2019 at Haus der Bayerischen Wirtschaft in Munich. 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 upcoming symposium, INGEDE is 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 will cover the whole paper value chain. Then, two parallel sessions offer 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!
