Lowering the Climate Impact of Plastic Materials – eCircular Hosted Debate in Lund
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? Can the development of increasinf plastic usage in the coming decades be avoided? Could we instead aim for lower consumption of plastics? What are the challenges of replacing fossil-based plastics with bio-based?
Leading researchers from Lund University and EIT Climate-KIC Flagship program eCircular discussed these issues together with industry representatives.
