The 6th Plastics Recycling Technology Conference will be held in Vienna, Austria on 1 and 2 October 2024.
Responding to increasing pressure to recycle plastics and add value to reclaimed materials, the plastics industry is changing fast: this event will cover everything stakeholders need to know to stay abreast.
The conference will explore plastics recycling, advances in processes, feedstock security and all the latest technologies. It will also offer inspirational talks and discussion groups, so participants will learn about methods for improving the quality of reclaimed materials for higher-value applications and developments in recycling systems and additives for better end-of life processing.
The Circularity Gap Report Munich is the first study measuring the Circularity Gap of a city. It assesses the city’s material consumption, material cycling, consumption-based carbon footprint and other indicators. It uses a consumption-based carbon accounting approach for emissions from goods and services consumed by residents of a locality. On average, each Munich resident consumes 32 tonnes of virgin materials annually.
The study acknowledges the successes of Munich’s circular economy strategy with initiatives like investment in public transport, community gardens and remanufacturing activities, but calls for bolder action to accelerate the circular transition

A newly launched report by the Norwegian Climate Committee 2050 (available in Norwegian) provides a comprehensive analysis of the challenges Norway faces in meeting its climate targets, highlighting problem areas such as consumption, emissions and biodiversity. It shines a spotlight on a significant gap between stated ambitions in current climate policies and the measures actually adopted.
To bridge this gap, the report makes several key recommendations (available in English), including outlining the role that the circular economy plays in solving the climate crisis.
A Circular Economy and Resource Efficiency conference with a multi-disciplinary perspective on how circular economy can be deployed to effect change in the day-to-day practice will be held in in Trondheim (Norway) and online by NTNU Sustainability.
CircularPSP brings together seven procurers from seven countries to jointly accelerate the digital transition towards a circular economy. Its focus is pre-commercial procurement (PCP).
It has invested €5.64 million in R&D and provides training and holds conferences. The procurers represent a number of European countries, including capitals with a strong global outreach (Berlin, Helsinki, London and Istanbul).
Other cities, regions, government organisations, public procurers and projects will have the chance to liaise with consortium representatives and are urged to become part of the Follower Network. They will be informed about the timeline and next steps in solution development, as well as opportunities for cooperation.
