Alupro to host sustainability panel
Alupro, the aluminium packaging recycling organisation, will host an expert panel debate on beverage can sustainability at this year’s UK Metals Expo.
The inaugural two-day event, which takes place between 14-15 September, is set to attract thousands of industry professionals to Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC).
Representing the UK’s aluminium packaging industry, Alupro will exhibit on stand K12 throughout the event.
In addition, Martin Hyde, Alupro’s sustainability and public affairs manager, will host a panel of industry experts, including canmaker CANPACK and aluminium producer Speira, to discuss the sustainability challenges facing the aluminium beverage can value chain.
Aiming to bring together the UK’s metal supply chain, as well as representatives from the engineering and manufacturing sectors, the UK Metals Expo is set to become a major calendar event. Attendees can listen to range of keynote speakers and discussions on subjects including innovation, training and the circular economy.
Tom Giddings, executive director at Alupro, commented: “Exhibiting at the UK Metals Expo will provide us with the perfect opportunity to engage with leading companies and thought leaders from across the supply chain.
“Alongside explaining the circular benefits of aluminium packaging recycling, we’re looking forward to taking part in discussions around the sustainability challenges facing the industry and casting a critical eye over the impending shake-ups to the packaging and waste sectors.
“Being presented with the opportunity to chair a panel debate with thought leaders from some of the world’s leading names in the beverage can supply chain is a huge honour. It offers a valuable platform to share our insight regarding impending legislative changes facing the sector, as well as the importance of knowledge share between the government and packaging supply chain to maximise the opportunities provided by future regulation.”
