Call for Abstracts: Advanced Recycling Conference (ARC)
Ambitious EU recycling targets, commitments from the chemical industry and brands, as well as customer demands, are putting enormous evolutionary pressure on the recycling sector. Large amounts of non-recycled waste, on the one hand, are confronted with the demand and search for renewable raw materials for chemicals and materials, on the other hand. This is sparking debate about which technologies are best suited to which waste streams and how to assess the environmental impact.
Advanced recycling technologies are evolving rapidly, with new market players ranging from start-ups to giants and everything in between; new factories are built or expanded, new capacities are reached and new partnerships are formed.
It’s hard to keep up with all these changes. The “Advanced Recycling Conference (ARC)”, which will take place over two days in the heart of Cologne, aims to break through the information jungle by providing insight and in-depth insight into all available recycling technologies for various streams of different plastics. waste, as well as political topics and environmental impacts. ARC will host technology providers, related industries, waste management companies, brands and investors, as well as policy makers and scientists working in the diverse and interdisciplinary field of recycling. The event will provide a framework for new partnerships, ideas, approaches and value chains by bringing together all relevant topics and experts.
Speakers will have a unique opportunity to present their latest developments to a wide and relevant audience, as well as to exchange and network with stakeholders from across the plastics value chain. The conference will cover all new and innovative recycling solutions, such as physical processes based on extrusion and dissolution; chemical processes based on solvolysis; biochemical processes based on enzymolysis; and thermochemical processes based on pyrolysis, thermal depolymerization, gasification and incineration with CCU.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is September 30.
