Utilising enablers and breaking barriers to achieve plastic circularity

5th Business Summit
GO CIRCULAR
BROCHURE.PDF

Go Circular is a business focused conference where participants have discussions around the main plastics circularity challenges and is the perfect place to start building plastic circularity collaborations.

It covers the entire plastics circular value chain starting from petrochemicals companies to brand owners.

With the recent news on the development of a legally binding treaty on plastics by world leaders, environment ministers and other representatives from 173 countries, the plastics circular economy is becoming more and more important.

With this entire circular plastics value chain platform we are helping the plastics value chain to accelerate towards a low carbon circular economy.

Sign up for the event updates to stay tuned for this year's edition.

1. COLLABORATIONS

The importance of value chain collaborations has never been more important. And what better way to find that perfect partner than through Go Circular? It’s the ultimate platform to connect and share your next big project.

2. WELL-BALANCED AUDIENCE

When we talk about a perfectly balanced audience in terms of companies and job titles, it’s like having a seductive symphony of delegates from every industry. We’re talking about a mix of representatives from the entire value chain, brand owners, petro(chemicals), licensors, speciality chemicals, recycling, sorting, waste management, NGOs, packaging and others.

3. NOT TOO BIG, NOT TOO SMALL

A wide spread of senior job titles representing the entire plastics circular economy value chain: technology, strategy, policy & partnerships. And it’s just the right event size (not too big, not too small).

4. SITE VISIT

The practical side of the conference where attendees not only discuss the hot topics and challenges but also have an opportunity to see the actual sites of sorting, waste management and chemical recycling. This year we are going to the Brightlands Chemelot Campus & Chemelot Industrial Park.

5. FUN & NETWORKING

Brainstorming sessions, debate panels, technical site visit, mobile app, prize draws, cocktail receptions – all of this to make the two days an unforgettable and valuable experience!

How different policies shape the future of the plastic circular economy

Different policies have a significant impact on the future of the plastic circular economy. Participants will discuss what regulation the industry needs to reach scale and what policies would help speed up the investment process for scale.

What is the market demand and what innovative technologies are appearing to fill that demand?

Collection, sorting, chemical, and mechanical recycling have become increasingly important. The demand for innovative technologies has grown rapidly. During the conference agenda, numerous solutions will be presented that can fulfil this demand, from advanced sorting systems to cutting-edge chemical recycling processes.

How to unlock the power of the plastic value chain with partnerships

Collaboration is key in achieving the transition to a plastic circular economy. Throughout the conference agenda there will be different case studies focusing on lessons learned.

Unlock the potential of design for recycling

Design for recycling has the potential to significantly reduce waste and promote sustainability. Participants will look into innovations and opportunities of flexible plastic packaging and the circular economy of textiles.

How can we bridge the gap between plastic recycling and reuse in a circular economy

Participants will focus on discussing innovative design, collection and sorting systems. And also discuss creating products with easily recyclable materials and improving the infrastructure for recycling and processing these materials. Additionally, educating consumers on the importance of recycling and using recycled materials.
