Transitioning the chemical industry toward a circular future

4th Business Summit
GO CIRCULAR
Post conference report

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.

The 3rd Go Circular Conference took place in Antwerp 28-29 April

GO CIRCULAR 2022 VIDEO STORY

KEY TOPICS

Rethinking, resetting, and redesigning of the plastics economy

The view of policy makers and NGOs. Greenwashing and hypocrisy, lack of concrete guidelines or industry bible that explains what to do. A certification scheme, is it a good idea?

Upstream circular economy: plastic waste collection, sorting, and recycling infrastructure

The major challenge in mechanical recycling is the lack of infrastructure in collection and sorting of waste. Let’s discuss it.

Design for recyclability/circularity and re-usability of packaging

Focus on extended producer responsibility for packaging and the view of brand owners, retailers and packaging companies.

Economics and commercial viability of recycling operations.

In this session we will focus on advanced recycling technologies and life cycle assessment (LCA) of chemical recycling. And close it off with a hot debate on mass balance approach with renewables and chemical recycling.

Investing in reuse models: value chain collaboration cases / projects.

Case studies, joint ventures, collaborations in the plastics circular value chain.
