Dr Ralf Düssel new Chairman of Plastics Europe Germany

Dr Ralf Düssel is the new chairman of the Association of Plastics Producers in Germany. The general meeting of PlasticsEurope Deutschland e. V. elected him in Hamburg to succeed Dr. Michael Zobel.

“Our industry is undergoing a transformation towards a circular and climate-neutral industry. With climate-friendly solutions or the use of alternative raw materials, we are actively driving this important transformation – and in an increasingly volatile market environment,” explained Dr Düssel after his election. “The fact is that the decisive course for the future of our industry is being set right now, and I am looking forward to being at the forefront of it.”

Dr. Ralf Düssel began his professional career in 1996 at Degussa Marl & Hanau. In 2001 he became site manager at Degussa Waterford in the USA before moving to Evonik in Essen in 2005. After holding several management positions within the company, Düssel has been responsible for the global business of high-performance polymers at Evonik from Marl since February 2018. He is also a member of the steering board of the pan-European association Plastics Europe in Brussels.
