Europe’s plastics strategy is striving to transform the way plastic products are designed, produced, used and recycled. Plastics can be an important material in our economy and daily lives, but they have serious negative effects on the environment and human health. This is the driver behind Europe’s desire to transition towards a circular economy that reuses single-use plastic waste.
To this end, the Interreg NW Europe funded project TRANSFORM-CE is organising a series of webinars in 2021 and 2022. On 4 November 2021 you are most welcome to join the webinar TRANSFORMing single use plastic and creating a CE-business model. It will introduce two innovative technologies - additive manufacturing and intrusion-extrusion moulding - both facilitating the transformation of this common waste stream into the feedstock for countless applications, from roof tiles and decking to architectural models and 3D printed components.
The project team will then explain what it is looking for and provide examples of business support opportunities. You can register for the webinar here. After registration you will receive the login details for the webinar.
- Date: 4 November 2021
- Location: online
- Time: 14:00–15:30 CET
This is a good opportunity for businesses, manufacturers and government authorities interested in learning more about TRANSFORM-CE and the potential benefits of transitioning to a circular economy business model. The project partners also welcome designers, creatives and members of the public who are interested in exploring the potential of single use plastic waste.
