Webinar: From #plasticfree to future proof plastics

Plastics are shrouded in controversial debates. While manufacturers highlight their benefits, more and more stakeholders refer to the problems associated with them. Fraunhofer UMSICHT and TNO conclude that plastics will and should remain an important part of our economy and our daily lives. Therefore, their use must be carefully considered, their disadvantages eliminated and their impact on the environment mitigated. In the webinar on June 5, 2023 the institutes present the results of their white paper: How a future-proof, circular and sustainable plastics economy should look like.

To do so, they addressed manifold questions, such as: In which applications can plastics be refused or replaced? How do plastics need to be designed, used and recycled in the future? How can we take advantage of plastics' benefits while solving their drawbacks? Does the solution help in reaching the overarching goals: Achieve climate neutrality, zero pollution and technological sovereignty? What actions need to be taken? All these questions are answered from an independent point of view based on trusted data.
