Lowering the climate impact of plastic materials
Increased plastic recycling and/or reduced usage of plastic materials is crucial to reach set environmental and climate targets.
How can plastic waste better be used as a resource and can digitalisation help?
Projections show a doubling of plastic usage in the coming decades. Can this development be avoided? Could we instead aim for lower consumption of plastics?
What are the challenges of replacing fossil-based plastics with bio-based?
We have invited leading researchers from Lund University and EIT Climate-KIC Flagship program eCircular to discuss these issues together with industry representatives.
The panel discussion is held as an EIT Climate-KIC Sparks! Lecture.
