Why should you attend?

While traditional mechanical recycling works well for PET and HDPE, chemical recycling is needed to effectively manage the complex stream of plastics that enter the waste every day. Especially, in the case of food contact materials, chemical recycling proves to be quite efficient as it can cater to difficult to recycle plastics, end of life plastics, or those considered non-recyclable.

Which is why, there is an incentive for you to consider chemical 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 chemical recycling methods with comparison of limitations, advantages and disadvantages of the different processes.

  2. Recycle a wider range of plastics waste than what is possible with traditional, mechanical recycling by gaining grasp on concepts of enzymatic depolymerization, pyrolysis, solvolysis…

  3. Prepare better for the future & meet today's market needs by understanding how to enable production of high-quality end products (new plastics and chemicals) that can be used multiple applications.
