The Plasticity Forum hopes to tackle the big questions when it comes to the future of plastics.
The event, which will be held in Dallas and Anaheim on April 21 and May 9, respectively, hopes to bring full-circle the use of plastics in design.
“Plasticity convenes leaders to share information, network, and primarily discuss best practices about scalable, innovative solutions to reduce the waste footprint left by plastics in our communities and environment,” says a statement from the Forum. “It attracts high-level participants, from brand owners; plastic product makers; NGOs, resin, and biomaterial suppliers; educators; designers; consultants; and more.”
The event launched in Rio de Janeiro in 2012 and was held in Shanghai and London in 2016.
This year’s event will focus on:
- Designing for recycling and standardization of materials
- Opportunities in manufacturing for the use of recycled content
- Innovations that reduce plastic waste impact and improve brand value
- Reverse supply chains, bring-back programs, and how to engage your customers
- Scaling for circular economies within industrial and municipal environments
- Turning waste streams into profit streams
- The recycling tipping point – transforming public beliefs and actions
