The Plasticity Forum in London included a unique range of global expert speakers on the topic of plastic sustainability, with challenges and opportunities that included the manufacturing needs for an innovative single-material shampoo bottle, the use of calcium carbonate from large volumes of egg shells as a filler for any types of polymers which can benefit from its inclusion. Giulio Bonazzi, chairman and CEO of Italy’s Aquafil Group, spoke about his firm’s unique fiber recycling capacities from carpet tiles and used fishing nets. Aquafil has a growing program with carpet maker Interface, which sources fishing nets from local communities in the Philippines and Cameron. Mr. Bonazzi, and Miriam Turner from Interface said that “over 100 tons of nets have been collected, with over 55,000 families impacted by a cleaner environment, and over 600 families now having access to micro finance as a result of the Net-Works program.”

A key challenge, according to Dr. Michael Biddle, a 25-year plastics recycling veteran, is the lack of a large U.S. domestic market for buyers of scrap plastics who want supplies that are reliable and consistent in both quality and volume, and collectors, generators and recyclers who want a reliable market that can create sufficient value to cover their costs and provide an attractive return on their investment.
