2nd International Recycling Forum WiesbadenAgricultural Plastics – Potential for Recycling

All presentations in English


We are delighted about your interest in the Wiesbaden Recycling Forum. RIGK invited in the year 2015 international industry representatives for the first time on the topic Agricultural Plastics – Potential for Recycling. Over 120 participants from 22 countries followed the presentations of 24 speakers from Germany, Europe and the world. The presenters reported about the national initiatives, current trends and the state of technology. The feedback was positive. Because of this representative resonance, we invite to our 2nd International Recycling Forum Wiesbaden, 26 – 28 April 2017. Look forward to three exciting days with topical presentations, an informative trade exhibition and an unforgettable evening event. Save the Date.


The transition in agriculture is diverse. The world's population is increasing and so is the need for food, but earth and water are finite. Solutions are required. Fodder and arable crops must be produced more effectively. Plastic products – agricultural films, nets and yarns, irrigation systems, but also packaging made of plastic for pesticides and fertilisers or hygiene products – have become an integral part of modern agriculture.
In view of this global trend, it is all the more important to take back the plastics after use, recycle them safely and use the high recycling potential.
