  1. Plastics play an essential role in modern society, but also lead to significant impacts on the environment and climate. Reducing such impacts while retaining the usefulness of plastics requires a shift towards a more circular and sustainable plastics system. This talk tells the story of plastics, and their effect on the environment and climate, and looks at their place in a European circular economy. It is based on the report of the European Environment Agency (EEA): Plastics, the circular economy and Europe′s environment — European Environment Agency (europa.eu). The talk also tells the story about how COVID19 has changed amounts of single use plastics in Europe, in particular face masks and gloves, as well as plastic packaging for take-away and online shopping, based on an EEA briefing: Impacts of COVID-19 on single-use plastic in Europe's environment — European Environment Agency (europa.eu).

  13. Tato Bigio, co-founder and CEO of UBQ Materials shares how UBQ has converted waste – a gross environmental liability - into the most climate positive thermoplastic on the market.

    The company is closing the loop between production, consumption, and waste with a singular solution – the UBQ™ material. A universal, drop-in material that substitutes oil-based resins, wood or minerals in everything from car parts, furniture, supply chain logistics and even 3D printing - the potential for UBQ™ is ubiquitous.

    Sustainability has never been so simple or economically viable.  The same price, same process, same products have a revolutionary environmental impact when made with UBQ™. Manufacturers now have the power to divert waste, protect finite natural resources, offset greenhouse gas emissions, and advance clients' environmental goals at no additional cost. This is the dawn of a new era - one where the industry is leading the change and pioneering initiatives for a cleaner future.
