Circular Design Trainings

The topics of packaging waste and packaging disposal are central issues that are becoming more and more important. Due to the increase in recycling rates of packaging waste within the framework of the EU's circular economy package, the recyclability as well as the circular design of packaging is becoming more and more important.
