Description

ExeMPLaR Workshop 3: Data for understanding the regional plastics system

Overview:

The purpose of this workshop is to conduct some high-level mapping of data that is needed to properly understand and evaluate a regional plastics economy. The aim is to invite relevant stakeholders such as researchers, local authorities, industry representatives to help us systematically map technical, economic, environmental and human behavioural data that are relevant to plastics in the southwest onto a conceptual assessment framework developed to evaluate system-level interventions. Below is a material flow diagram for UK plastics created in the WRAP Plastics Spatial Flow report. Our ultimate objective is to create similar maps for the southwest in terms of material flows, environmental impacts and economic values.

Main question: What are the best datasets or data sources for material stocks & flows, economic values and environmental impacts of plastics in the southwest?

SubQ1: what and where are the existing data related to plastics in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset?

SubQ2: what are the most practical ways to collect the key missing data within the timeframe of ExeMPLaR?

SubQ3: what should be the longer-term focus for data collection and research?
