Veka Compounds, the polymer division of Veka Recycling, is supporting the forthcoming PVC 2021 event, said to be the World’s leading forum on polyvinyl chloride, taking place in a virtual format, on 10th, 11th and 12th May.

Veka Compounds is the only sponsor specialising in the processing and marketing of recycled PVC-U at the event, which will feature more than 50 speakers covering all aspects of the PVC sector.

“Veka Group is the world’s largest manufacturer of products manufactured in PVC-U and for thirty years has pioneered the recycling of a material that it regards as a key resource,” said managing director Simon Scholes.

“As our recently commissioned British plant represents the pinnacle of that experience by becoming the most advanced of its type in Europe, PVC 2021 is an ideal event through which we may show just how far our sector has come.

“PVC 2021 provides us with an excellent forum through which we look forward to enjoying meaningful discussions with our colleagues in the industry. Even on a virtual platform the conference and networking opportunities are of key importance to our industry.”

Simon will deliver an address to delegates entitled ‘PVC Window Recycling from a UK Perspective’. “We are determined to drive up the actual and perceived quality of both the PVC-U recycling process and also of the material that we present to the market,” he said. “It is crucial that we demonstrate that PVC-U is sustainable in tangible terms: that the material we process can be re-used and brought back to the market for a cycle of anything up to 350 years is a message that must be communicated. And that should begin with the industry itself.”
