International Conference: Circular Economy in Plastics

ISWA Austria together with CEC4Europe and ISWA International invites you to discuss the role, opportunities and challenges of a plastic circular economy on December 13th 2023 at 14:00 CET in the Tandler-Lounge of MA48 in Vienna.

Beside the global and international boundary conditions to be formed by the international plastic treaty that is negotiated just now, as well as the respective EU-regulations already in place through the circular economy package, we would like to invite you to discuss with us what opportunities digitization, mechanical and chemical recycling provide and what role they will be able to play. Also the role of Waste2Energy in connection with carbon capture and utilization (CCU) will be presented by and discussed with international experts.

In addition, you will be able to network with representatives from all three organizers.
