GlobalPSC priority product workshop

Posted on: September 3rd, 2013

The Global Product Stewardship Council (GlobalPSC) is bringing global leaders on product-specific producer responsibility collection and reprocessing initiatives to Australia help identify and learn from international best practice. A workshop will be held on 18 November 2013 in Port Melbourne, from 9am – 1.30pm. The workshop will focus on products listed for consideration under the Australian Product Stewardship Act, including handheld batteries and waste paint.

Featured international speakers:
• Carl Smith, CEO and President, Call2Recycle (North America)
• Alison Keane, Vice President Government Affairs, American Coatings Association
• Mark Kurschner, President, Product Care Association (North America)
• Corinne Faure-Rochu, Director Business Development, Recupyl (Europe)

Panel sessions will include these speakers and other product-specific experts on batteries and paint from the USA and Australia. A special evening function will enable even greater access to this international line-up for GlobalPSC members.

Further information on the workshop and evening function are available from GlobalPSC.

During the afternoon there will be further consultations between industry and government on the design of a national stewardship program for handheld batteries. For more information on this please contact Helen Lewis on info@batteryrecycling.org.au.
