Lowering the climate impact of plastic materials

w
Other

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.

Panelists:

Alberto Bellini, Associate Professor, University of Bologna

Holger Berg, Project Lead, Wuppertal Institute

Rajni Hatti-Kaul, Professor, Lund University

Linda Zellner, Director Innovation, Perstorp AB

Pau Huguet Ferran, Sustainabillity Lead Spain, Ecomatters

Moderator: Prof. Lars J Nilsson, Lund University
