Both the international paper and recovered paper recycling industries were hit hard in 2022 by the aftermath of Covid-19, the adverse effects of the aggressive Russian war on Ukraine and consequent delivery chain interruptions. How are the energy crisis and trade friction impacting Germany as an industrial region? What challenges will the recovered paper industry have to brace itself for this year? The bvse Papier Recycling Specialist Association await answers from keynote speaker, Prof. Dr. Dr. Clemens Fuest, President, ifo-Institute for Economic Research. On the 23rd March at the 25th bvse International Recovered Paper Conference, the German economist and professor of economics will present an outlook on the economic perspectives for 2023.
The bvse, presided over by vice president Werner Steingass, has once again this year put together a programme where recognised international experts in the fields of economics, politics and science as well as expert representatives from trade associations and local authorities give their views and offer solution approaches to the most pressing topics relevant to the recovered paper industry.
The conference starts at 10:15 am with a welcoming address by bvse president Henry Forster and the official opening by Steingass. Michael Brocker, journalist and radio broadcasting moderator (WDR 5), is the conference manager and moderator. He will moderate discussions with speakers and guests in his accustomed knowledgeable and in depth manner, including discussions concerning the international recovered paper market situation, the dangers of cybercrime in international trade and other challenges or indeed opportunities for the recovered paper industry. Crucial topics such as, “EU Waste Shipment Regulation – A question of how the dice rolls” or “The End-of-Waste Status of Recovered Paper” promise to provide interesting Q&A sessions. In addition, we look forward to further presentations and debate on controversial issues such as, “Tissue – a future without recovered paper?” or “Gras & Co. instead of Recovered Paper – Are new plant-fibre materials a threat?”.
