Why should you attend?

The plastics industry is moving towards adopting the circular economy model (reduce, reuse and recycle) which highly supports the use of recycled plastic materials.

However, problems working with recycled materials are quality and standardization. Additionally, you might also face issues with availability, supply, discovering new sources of recycled materials and designing a complete project based on recycled plastic materials.

Which is why, there is an incentive for you to consider new possibilities for recycling to avoid the loss of quality, performance and properties of the recycled materials. Join this course to:

  1. Focus your R&D efforts in the right direction with a clearer view on recycled plastic materials and circular economy in terms of their limitations, possible partners, materials, and fields of applications.

  2. Easily adapt to sustainable practices by gaining insights on the regulations, standards and circular economy policies.

  3. Prepare better for the future by understanding how to integrate recycled plastic materials and how to face new projects involved with recycled materials.
