Ingrid became the General Manager of Recovinyl in 2017, after being the legal director of the European Plastics Converters Association (EuPC) for 12 years. During that period, she worked for several associations and European projects as either general manager or legal counsel.
Under her management, Recovinyl invested profoundly in the extension of its recyclers and converters network. Furthermore she developed RecoTrace, Recovinyl’s new advanced data collection system, which was launched in February 2021, and which allows recyclers and converters to register their plastics recycling and converting data.
She was and still is actively involved in the Circular Plastics Alliance monitoring working group and co-drafted the CPA monitoring methodology.
On behalf of VinylPlus she initiated the talks which led to the creation of PolyREC, the European organisation which will align data collection and reporting for all polymers to ensure traceability, transparency and trust in recycled material along the entire plastics value chain.
Prior to Ingrid’s involvement in the plastics industry, she was a lawyer for 8 years at Brussels Bar, specialising in corporate and criminal law. Ingrid gained her law degree from KU Leuven and has a DEA in criminal sciences at Paris II, Panthéon-Assas University.
