  7. In a clean circular economy, it is essential to boost the production and uptake of recycled materials and ensure that both virgin and recycled materials and products are always safe. This will require ...
  8. This talk looks at green manufacturing focusing on how to ensure more circular and sustainable manufacturing for consumption in Europe. Plastic and textiles are explored as examples of sectors with hi ...
  9. This presentation will explain the potential of CCU to contribute to EU's 2030 and 2050 climate goals and provide an overview of projects, funding support and the policy context for CCU in Europe
  10. All serious sustainability and ESG strategies need to include Scope 3 emissions, but it is one of the most difficult areas to tackle. Complex supply chains are often faced with huge data complexities ...
  11. The supply of raw materials is about to be revolutionized in the pursuit of sustainable feedstocks that support a circular bioeconomy. The development of new generation materials will only take place ...

  2. The shift from fossil-based to renewable plastics requires novel ways of producing monomers. New technologies developed at VTT enable the use of pectin-containing agricultural waste, such as citrus pe ...
  3. Bio based feedstocks are gaining an immense amount of traction, but there is little written or explored about the industrial scale up of this technology. The presentation would go through The Shellwor ...
  4. Bioplastics can be naturally biodegradable in various ecological environments such as compost, sewage wastewater, sea or algae environments of sweet or salt waters. For this reason, it is very importa ...
  5. One of the greatest challenges today is to move from a non-renewable fossil-based economy to a more sustainable model of economic development. Due to the depletion of natural resources, increasing gre ...
  6. The world urgently needs to speed up the transition towards green chemistry. How do we scale-up sustainable innovations, so they actually make an impact on CO2 emissions and reduce the need of fossil ...
  7. As mobility is undergoing a revolution to become cleaner, sustainability must be an integral part of the performance definition. Using fewer, cleaner materials is crucial, and composites have an essen ...
  8. The spotlight on materials traceability and circular economy solutions is growing. The panel will discuss how manufacturers can track the first and second life of materials to ease the global climate ...

  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.
