Save the date: Future plastic circular supply chain tour (8th November)

Posted on Posted on 16 Jul 2022

Teesside – the emerging European hub of polymer recycling

The future of plastic supply chains must be circular, but how will this work or look? What input materials should we be considering, how are they sorted, how can they be recycled and ultimately reintegrated into new products?


This one-day event will explore one of Europe’s leading chemical clusters where an emerging circular supply chain for polymers is based.  A tour of the facility will be included during the day.


Come and see the plant, the product and the future of plastic recycling.
