The Plasticity Forum (www.plasticityforum.com) will host its 6th international conference in London on 21 September, as part of the London Design Festival. Held most recently this past spring in Shanghai, the event “brings together experts from across the plastics spectrum to discuss innovation and the dynamics of scaling processes, materials and recycling to reduce waste and create value”.
The event’s aim is to recognize the value that plastics bring to society, while also embracing both sustainability and the circular economy. The event will offer “a big conversation on the future of plastic,” and discuss where opportunities can be created related to recycled content, resource recovery, job creation and waste reduction.
Plasticity London will include discussions on topics such as:
Designing for recycling & standardization of materials
Opportunities in manufacturing for the use of recycled content
Innovations that reduce plastic waste impact & improve brand value
Reverse supply chains, bring-back programs & how to engage your customers
Scaling for circular economies within industrial & municipal environments
Turning waste streams into profit streams
The recycling tipping point – transforming public beliefs and actions
