Plasticity Forum Attracts Expert
By EIN Presswire- Published on October 13, 2017 by KPTV Fox 12 Oregon
With over 8 million tons of plastic estimated to be entering the ocean globally, it is becoming increasingly clear that brands and governments have a key role to play in engaging their communities with new opportunities that can reduce waste and develop new end markets, spurring jobs, innovation and improved environments, much of which will be discussed at Plasticity Sydney.
The only global conference focused solely on plastic sustainability, Plasticity Sydney will touch on a wide range of solutions which exist today across industry groups, including Australasia’s recycling efforts, which are under threat from China’s new “National Sword” policy that is disrupting the region’s plastic scrap marketplace. Rather than focusing on the doom, this changed circumstance of not being able to export low-processed scrap materials to China offers opportunities for existing and new businesses across a range of industries.
