Packaging value chain circular economy expert
The packaging sector is growing strongly in both the plastic and forest industries. Packaging material waste is generated both as a by-product of industry and in massive quantities by individual consumers. As recycled and reusable packaging material is an important entity in the EU’s circular economy action plan, companies and industry should take even more heed of this.
Education is needed in the whole packaging value chain. To meet the need, in fall 2023, TAMK will launch for the first time in Finnish the “Packaging value chain circular economy expert” training aimed at professionals in the packaging value chain. It is based on the education programme “Specialist in the circular economy of plastic packaging,” created by the PackAlliance, Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance project consortium, where TAMK is involved as an active consortium member.
