EuPC Press Release


The recent, swift developments of the EU Single-use plastics directive proposal are developing at a very worrying speed. The European Parliament and the Council are called to make up their minds in very short time frames, deviating from usual best practices and agreed calendars.

On the 25th May in Milan, during EuPC’s General Assembly, Renato Zelcher, CEO of Crocco S.p.A., has been elected as the new EuPC President for the period 2018-2020, replacing Micheal Kundel after four years of great leadership. EuPC’s GA has taken place during the annual two-day Conference that has been organised this year in collaboration with Unionplast (Federazione Gomma Plastica), the Italian plastics converting association.
