Taher Patrawala, managing director, Media Fusion, said, “As we witness a global shift towards sustainable practices, it’s imperative for nations to address the pressing issue of plastic pollution. With the Indian government’s proactive measures, including the ban on various single-use plastic items and the implementation of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations, the stage is set for significant strides in plastic waste management.

Speaking on the occasion, Matthew Barber, global events director, Crain Communications, said, “PRS is globally recognized as a brand – known for its expertise in bringing together the entire plastics recycling value chain on one platform in Europe, the Middle East and South-East Asia. The PRS Show has been growing since its inauguration in Europe in 2015. Building on the success of PRS in Europe and the Middle East, we are elated to bring PRS to India.
