This conference is part of the Sustainable Materials Series.

Plastics play an important role in our economy and daily lives but the way it is currently produced, used and discarded harms the environment. This fast growing volume of plastics has a strong impact on ecosystems, biodiversity and even human health if not handled responsibly.

More and more we realise that the valuable material produced could be brought back into the economy. The need to tackle the potential economic and environmental benefits of a more resource-efficient and circular approach is adamant.

The Sustainable Materials Series, being organised by Jakajima in close collaboration with strategic partner Brightlands Chemelot Campus, will cover specific themes concerning the circular approach during several conferences.
