ollowing the success of its previous editions, ACI’s 8th edition of the Future of Polyolefins Summit will be taking place in Brussels, Belgium on the 22nd & 23rd January 2020.
With the increased attention on plastic & waste from the public, the polyolefins industry is facing many changes, not only from a regulation perspective, but also in designing products meeting sustainability & circular economy targets. The entire value chain now needs to adapt to this new era for plastics in order to thrive and make a positive impact on the planet.
Over the two days, the participants will discuss the trends of the polyolefins industry and its end-products, and of course how to implement the circular economy targets at each step of the value chain.
The conference will also discuss how to maintain performance whilst aiming for recyclability of materials; efficiently using recycled materials; design & performance for polyolefin based plastic; as well as recycling technologies.
This new edition will bring together senior executives from petrochemical companies, plastic converters, technology providers, chemical intermediate suppliers, researchers, as well as other influential stakeholders from the value chain.
