UKCPN is partnering with the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures to run an event looking at the challenges of the sustainable use of plastics in the agriculture sector. It will look at the current state and potential of recycling technologies, for example in silage wrap and mulches, and also the behavioural changes that need to occur in the farming community to reclaim more of the plastic. So please put Friday 7th February 2020 in your calendar and we will be giving out more details soon.
