"But, what is chemical recycling and how does the process differ from recovery and mechanical recycling? We try to cover several aspects of these questions in this panel, moderated by Adam Read."
Join the National Chemical Recycling Platform event, on 10 December where we will discuss the role of chemical recycling as a complementary technology to mechanical recycling in the transition to circular plastics.
When plastic first burst onto the scene in the 1950s it was hailed as a wonder material, now as waste it endures pariah status. New approaches to recycling it may well re-secure its "fantastic” status.
A panel of four experts, including our Technical Director Marvine Besong, will present and debate the merits of two of the latest complementary technologies/innovations in recycling household waste into fuels and feedstocks for industrial use.
Developing domestic plastics reprocessing capacity is an essential part of the circular economy – join key members of the supply chain to find solutions and access the opportunities of the infrastructure challenge.
On the 26th November IOM will be hosting the Balancing Resource Efficiency with Climate Change one-day conference looking at CCS, life cycle in the circular economy and the UK resource and waste landscape.
The forum will focus on 'Clean Transport', 'Plastics with Potential' and 'Food of the Future' and will host a large number of industry leaders and academics to address the topical issue of climate change.
Plastics Recyclers Europe is an organisation representing the voice of European plastics recyclers. PRE actively supports the increase of plastics recycling and supports the transition towards a circular economy.
With the theme Embracing the region’s strengths amidst vast changes in trade flows and capacities, the 7th ICIS Asian Polyolefins Conference will highlight the most talked about trends coupled with outlook for the industry delivered by key market leaders you should not miss.
Consumer awareness around single-use plastics and the wider sustainability agenda had a pivotal moment in 2018 as the Blue Planet effect and the ensuing high-profile anti-plastic campaigns moved the debate into the mainstream. While awareness is clearly at an all time high, how far is this translating into genuine action designed to support long-term sustainable change by both corporates and consumers? Learning lessons from Sweden, this session will look at how far we’ve come in moving mindsets on reusables and recycling, exploring the current limitations and what more needs to be done to remove the barriers to action.
