Exploring new avenues in plastics recycling

Plastic waste is drawing heavy criticism. The aim must be to avoid waste, reuse packaging and promote recycling. The Innovation Symposium at Swiss Plastics Expo will reveal which process is best for which plastic waste under given circumstances.

The Innovation Symposium provides expert knowledge – gained from practice for use in practice. On Wednesday, January 22, 2020 from 10:00 to 11:35 am, experts will be taking the stage in hall 2 to talk about the background and current projects relevant to breaking new ground in plastics recycling.
