Event description

Description

You are invited to join this public event providing contexts and advances in research around problems, challenges and solutions for single-use plastics (SUP). The event is themed around three sessions:

  • Single Use Plastics & the Environment – Why do we (or don’t we) need to worry about SUP? What is the scale of pollution and waste issues in marine, terrestrial and freshwater environments?

  • Single Use Plastics & Innovation – What is changing? What is happening with the latest technologies for recycling and development of alternatives to SUP?

  • Single Use Plastics in Society – What is the role of plastics in our society? Are they here to stay? How does consumer behaviour and choice affect challenges, innovation and future availability of SUP?

We are delighted that to date the following keynote speakers have confirmed for the event:

  • Prof. Edward Kosior, Nextek Ltd.

  • Prof. Gary Leeke, Cranfield University

  • Prof. Wouter Poortinga, Cardiff University
