2017 Conference

The Plastics Caps and Closures Conference 2017 took place on the 7th-8th November 2017 at the Hotel Novotel, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 

The conference shares insights on how the industry and society deal with one of the most challenging elements of packaging: the safe and robust closure of packaging that should also be easy to open.

The environmental implications of caps and closures littering, both on land and in the seas, were extensively addressed. Also the implications of an ageing population for caps and closure design were discussed.

NVC is partner of the conference, especially in the field of materials science, accessible design and sustainable innovation. NVC director Michael Nieuwesteeg was the conference chairman.
