Benoît Hennaut, CEO of Herige Group, elected as the new EuPC President


Today during the General Assembly of European Plastics Converters, Mr. Benoît Hennaut, CEO of Herige Group, has been elected as the new EuPC President for the period 2022-2024, replacing Mr. Renato Zelcher after four years of great leadership.

EuPC’s GA has taken place during the annual two-days Conference that has been organised this year in cooperation with two Belgian associations, Agoria and Essenscia – PolyMatters.

While the annual two-days conference A Circular Future with Plastics had to be postponed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, it was this year the occasion to meet everyone again in prestigious locations in Brussels such as the Renaissance Hotel and the Concert Noble. EuPC members were more than happy to finally meet again for the EuPC General Assembly after the virtual session of last year.

More than 150 attendees have joined us in Brussels, participating in EuPC Divisions and Waste Free Oceans’ session, as well as during the main conference. The two-days event, promoted by EuPC, Agoria and Essenscia – PolyMatters have shown the industry’s willingness to continue the value chain efforts on circularity in order to demonstrate to public authorities the benefits of plastics products to society.


Mr. Hennaut, who had been elected EuPC President for a first mandate in 2022, said after his election:

It is an honor to have been elected EuPC President for the next 2 years and succeed Renato Zelcher in this position. Ahead of us are years of opportunities and challenges towards the circularity of our plastics industry in Europe. Only through innovation and carbon savings in our industry will we continue to lead this transformation needed”.

Mr. Benoît Hennaut
