26 April 2018: The Forum on the Circular Economy Paradigm will follow Day 2 of World Polyolefins Conference

At a time when regulation threatens to impose stringent quotas on recycled content within plastic products, but the required technology and economics are lacking, how will polyolefins feature and compete within the circular economy? What effect will this have on your business? Join this half-day seminar to ensure your business is applying sustainable strategies and risk mitigation to safeguard its future.

Key presentations include:

  • How does the circular economy work for plastics and polymers?
    Eugenio Longo, Chairman, Polyolefin Circular Economy Platform (PCEP)
  • The producer perspective on the circular economy
    Guenter Stephan, Head of Circular Economy, Borealis
  • Advances in recycling PP
    Mike Otworth, CEO, PureCycle Technologies
    John Layman, R&D Section Head, Procter & Gamble and Chief Technologist & Founding Inventor, PureCycle Technologies
  • Hear from Hugo-Maria Schally, Head of Unit, DG ENV B.1 Sustainable Production, Products and Consumption, European Commission, via video conference, as he discusses how to prepare for the European Commission’s Strategy on plastics. Hugo-Maria’s presentation will review the current status of the Strategy as well as how it will affect the polyolefin business moving forward. He will be presenting as part of the Circular Economy Forum, for which you can find more information here
