The CU Kick-off Webinar “Opportunities of Circular Economy for the Ceramic Industry, under the Green Deal”, took place on 19 June, from 10:00-11:30, through the online platform ZOOM and had an attendance of more than 170 participants.
As part of the European Green Deal, the Ceramic Industry is absolutely committed to the Circular Economy Action Plan, which will accelerate and promote the transition to a Circular Economy. The European Ceramic Industry already plays an active role in this transition with sustainable products and has developed numerous solutions to minimize the consumption of raw materials and the waste generated during the production process, as well as to increase the rate of reuse / recycling of its products.
The kick-off Webinar aimed to communicate on the contribution of the Ceramic Industry to Circular Economy, as well as to present best practices developed in our Industry.
