Chemical recycling is the new buzzword we keep hearing from different stakeholders, being them industry, policy officers or concerned activists.
Zero Waste Europe has recently released a study to share some light into the topic. With this webinar we move a step further in trying to understand what we refer to when we say chemical recycling, what are its pro and cons and if it could fit into a circular economy.
The speakers represent three different angles in the discussion: the industry already testing chemical recycling, the European Commission Directorate General for Environment working on waste management and the environmental NGO sector evaluating chemical recycling suitability for a circular economy.
This webinar will examine some key questions:
- What is chemical recycling?
- What are the techniques considered as chemical recycling?
- Is it really recycling?
- Comparative analysis with mechanical recycling
- The current state of the technology: advantages and drawbacks
- Policy status and challenges
Unfortunately, the webinar platform we use has a maximum capacity of 100 virtual seats. For this specific webinar, we have received a vast amount of interest, we are sorry but we won’t be able to host online everyone who has registered.
The attendance will therefore be done on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning that only the first 100 people to log-in will be able to attend the webinar.
For everybody else, the recording will be available to purchase for a small contribution the next day. Thank you for your understanding and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
