IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON CIRCULAR ECONOMY. WHAT ARE THE DRIVERS AND CHALLENGES IN THE EU PETROCHEMICALS INDUSTRY
In this session, we will identify new opportunities & create strategies that will be key to reducing the petrochemical industry’s environmental impact. How do we include circularity into the whole value chain?
Presentation topics
  • Assessing the volume of waste, recycling process, and timeline in the circular value chain. What are the likely proportions of reducing (single use), recycle (closed-loop), and re-use (extend life cycle) in 2030?
  • Comparison of the carbon footprint of manufacturing products out of post-consumer resins versus virgin material
  • EU circular economy plan 2.0: what are the future measures and call for action?
  • RED II (Renewable Energy Directive): what are the challenges for waste circularity?

PANEL DISCUSSION: IDENTIFYING STANDARDS AND COMPETITIVE PRICING FOR RECYCLED PRODUCT
  • What is the impact of COVID-19 on the prices and what happens now?
  • What is the difference between the product’s properties from chemical recycling and the needs of the petrochemicals industry
