Polymers for Europe Alliance


What is the Polymers for Europe Alliance?


The Alliance was initiated by the European Plastics Converters association (EuPC) during its General Assembly in May 2015. It is an online, confidential information platform open to all parties who have an interest in the competitive conversion of polymers in Europe. Its objectives are to provide factual public information on the status of the polymer supply situation in Europe and to re-establish a constructive dialogue with the supply base.


What does the Polymers for Europe Alliance offer?


  • Launch of the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe 2016:
