AGENDA HIGHLIGHTS

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.
