2nd Annual Plasticity Forum – 06 June 2013
Following on from its tremendous success at RIO20+ last year, Plasticity is back.
Serving up sustainable, innovative solutions related to the use of plastic, Plasticity 2013 showcases market opportunities for transforming plastic waste into a valuable resource.
Plastic – A Wasted Opportunity
It’s versatile, it’s cheap, and it’s incredibly convenient. Yet despite being designed to throw away, plastic simply doesn’t go away.
Every year a staggering 280 million tons of plastic is produced globally, yet estimates suggest that only 10% each year is actually recycled. Capturing this waste stream presents a significant and untapped business opportunity, as does the redesign of packaging, and the thought process around waste creation.
Plasticity 2013 presents ideas on how to harness this material in new ways, both pre and post consumer use. Discussions will focus on design, materials, innovations, re-use, and waste reduction.
Plasticity 2013: The Event
Bringing together leading practitioners from plastic supply chains, procurement, and post-consumer waste management in a one-day conference, Plasticity 2013 delivers an innovation-packed agenda, addressing key issues such as:
- Measuring, managing and reducing plastic dependency
- Transforming waste streams into revenue streams
- Design opportunities in packaging and product development
- Plastic waste-to-power solutions
- Investor support for plastic up-cycling
- Reducing the global impact of plastic waste
Don’t miss your chance to join over 200 innovators, sustainable brand leaders, educators, think tanks, government agencies and NGOs at this unique event.
“The Rio 20+ Plasticity event was perfectly organized … making this absolutely worthwhile to sponsor and attend. I truly look forward to the following Plasticity event next year. Congratulations to the organizers!”
