Transitioning toward a circular economy with advanced recycling technologies

11 Nov 2021
The Greener Manufacturing Show Conference
The limitations of traditional recycling technologies and the economic challenges facing the planet currently present significant roadblocks in tackling the global plastic waste crisis. To truly transform into a global circular economy for plastics, the acceptance and implementation of advanced recycling technologies are critical. While there is no single solution to solve this growing crisis, there are innovations and technologies from the industry to help. The presentation will explain the ins and outs of advanced recycling – a technology 101, the pros and cons, which advanced technologies work best for which materials, the infrastructure challenges that need to be overcome to get more chemical recycling technologies operating at scale, and what you can do to be part of the solution.
