Clemens Kitzberger, Post Consumer Business Development Manager at the EREMA Group, is a new board member of the European initiative CEFLEX (Circular Economy for Flexible Packaging) since September 2021. The aim of CEFLEX is to increase the contribution of flexible packaging to the circular economy.
In his new function, Kitzberger, who has more than 20 years of recycling experience - including three years of active involvement in the CEFLEX initiative - represents machine manufacturers, suppliers and customers, among others. “In order to establish future-oriented solutions, it is particularly important that the parties involved communicate with each other. We already have extremely effective technologies on the market, and we need to combine them even better in the interests of the circular economy. This will significantly improve the quality of the recyclates and in turn the quality of new end products,“ says Kitzberger, looking forward to his new task.
“In order to establish future-oriented solutions, it is particularly important that the parties involved communicate with each other."
The CEFLEX consortium consists of more than 160 European companies, associations and organisations that together cover the whole flexible packaging value chain - including raw material suppliers, packaging processors, brand owners, retailers, manufacturer responsibility organisations, collectors, sorters and recyclers, as well as other technology providers and users of secondary raw materials.
