Old and new EuPC President: Renato Zelcher (© EuPC)

During the General Assembly of European Plastics Converters, Mr. Renato Zelcher, CEO of Crocco SpA, Cornedo Vicentino /Italy, was re-elected as EuPC President for the period 2020-2022. While the annual two-day conference A Circular Future with Plastics had to be postponed by one year due to the COVID 19 pandemic in Europe, EuPC members met online for their first virtual General Assembly.

Mr. Zelcher, who had been elected EuPC President for a first mandate in 2018, said after his election: “I am honoured of the trust EuPC has given me since 2018 and to have been re-elected as President for a second mandate. This confirmation gives me the strength and serenity to face these very difficult times and coming major challenges with renewed drive and determination."

Several management positions newly assigned

Mr. Claude Clement, President and CEO Europe at Plastic Omnium Clean Energy was also re-elected for his second term as EuPC Treasurer and third term as chair of the EuPC Automotive & Transport Division.

As chair of the Building & Construction Division, the EuPC members re-elected for her second term Ms. Myriam Tryjefaczka, Sustainability and public affairs Director EMEA at Tarkett. Prof. Dr. Achim Grefenstein, Senior Vice President Group R&D at Constantia Flexibles, was newly elected as chair of the Packaging Division, replacing Mr. David Baker as chair. In addition, the General Assembly elected Mr. Andres Lantero Moreno, President of Grupo Lantero, as a new member of the EuPC Steering Committee.

Furthermore, EUMEPS joined EuPC as a full member and will join the platform MORE to report the use of rEPS by plastic converters. Although COVID-19 is creating problems in the plastics recycling markets, the plastics converting industry in Europe is very much united in ensuring transparency in the use of recycled materials.
