Single-Use Plastic Circularity Summit

Creating a new life for single-use plastics

The scientific process is incredibly important to the health of the globe, as we have seen within the global pandemic over the last two years. However, it is a rather wasteful process. Single-use plastics are the cause of this. Avoiding plastic straws and grocery bags are a great personal effort but let’s take it another step forward. The scientific and manufacturing communities can come together to reduce the use of single-use plastics throughout the innovative processes we all know and love.

This Sept. 26 event will showcase a collective of professionals from contributors across the ecosystem, to resin vendors and end-of-life recyclers. Keynote speakers and panelists will lead discussions revolving around understanding the industry, identifying support motives, and collaborative efforts within ecosystem participants. The event is free, but space is limited. Register now to secure a spot at the event.
