Circular Plastics Conference ’24

At the Circular Plastics Conference 2024, we will Reflect and Act on what’s next in plastic recycling. We address the entire value chain from an international perspective and focus on the technological, logistic, and societal challenges lying ahead.

The burning question remains: how to continue this road to circular plastics? What are the major challenges facing the Netherlands as it seeks to recycle at least half of plastic waste by 2030 and achieve 100% circularity by 2050, and how is the government working to overcome these challenges?

On September 26th, 2024 (for the 4th time) 150+ experts, pioneering thinkers, stakeholders and academics from the field of circular plastics will gather in Jaarbeurs MeetUp in Utrecht for the Circular Plastics Conference ’24 to formulate the next steps in closing the loop before 2050.

You are cordially invited to join our inspiring keynotes on economic, regulatory, societal and technological developments. The program features interactive discussions with, amongst others, Jean-Paul Lange, professor at the University of Twente and senior principal Science Expert at Shell, Philip Knapen, Marketing Manager Rigid Packaging at Borealis and Husam Taha,
Principal Analyst at Wood Mackenzie.  

Special to this edition is the collaboration with TI COAST, the Top Institute for Comprehensive Analytical Science and Technology. This partnership enhances our focus on innovation in the analysis and characterization of recyclates. We are excited to include this unique collaboration for the 2024 edition.

About the Circular Plastics Initiative (CPI)

The annual Circular Plastics Conference is powered by the Circular Plastics Initiative (CPI), which is a collaboration between Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI) and the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology (ISPT).

The CPI addresses the entire value chain from an international perspective and focus on technological, logistic, and societal challenges lying ahead. In order to reach our goal, we work close with many more organizations throughout the plastic value chain.

We are open for more participants. Would you like to join or receive more information?
