What is the role of plastics in a Circular Economy? Why is innovation so important for the transition towards a resource efficient Europe? What is full life cycle thinking?
These and other equally challenging questions were on the agenda of the event “Innovation with plastics for a circular and resource efficient Europe”, organized by PlasticsEurope. The event took place on 18 September in Brussels and gathered more than 100 attendees, including policy and decision makers, representatives from the plastics manufacturing, converting and recycling industry, NGOs, media, science and academia to discuss the role of plastics in a resource efficient circular economy.
