Join us for the October 10 meeting of the Transportation and Industrial Plastics (TIP) committee. TIP is PLASTICS' principle  point of engagement for all producers of rigid and durable plastics in automotive, industrial and consumer goods. The entire supply chain – equipment manufacturers, material suppliers, processors, brand owners and recyclers – are represented in the group as it addresses issues around sustainability and end-of-life vehicle recycling, lightweighting and materials issues, and other regulatory, advocacy and education issues of relevance to this particular end market sector.

Registration for this meeting is free and open to the entire plastics industry.
