In 2019 the EU has published directives on the strategy for plastics in a circular economy accompanied by a set of action plans to develop a sustainable European industry. A world of 7.6 billion inhabitants cannot function anymore without plastics but each world citizen will need to face and take part in changing the ways plastics are produced, used and re-used in a circular, sustainable way.

The Plastics Innovation Competence Center (PICC) invites you to attend the Plastics Update 2019 Conference:

Plastics for a Circular Economy.

​​International speakers are highlighting the main ambitions of the EU strategy and present implementable actions to address the challenges for realizing a sustainable circular economy for plastics.

Three topics are expanded upon:

  • Innovative Plastics.

​The 4th Plastics Update Conference informs on state-of-the-art thinking and proposes technology that can make a difference to transform industry and engage ensuring humanity can continue to enjoy the benefits of planet and plastics in a sustainable way.
