What can your business do to reduce plastic waste? – challenges and solutions - Portsmouth
Consumers are demanding that their plastic packaging is not damaging the environment and recent initiatives and laws demonstrate the effect that they are having. However, what about plastic waste that does not directly interact with a consumer? This accounts for 40% or 1.2mt of current UK plastic waste that is currently not recycled. It is clear that this needs addressing by the implementation of new technologies and innovations. The UKCPN is running a series of events to introduce potential opportunities for your business in this area and also understand the actual challenges you have, both now and in the future.
Come along to one of the sessions being held across the country if you would like to:
- Maximise recycled plastic feedstock in the products you make.
- Replace the plastics you use in your products with alternate materials.
- Minimise plastic waste from your manufacturing processes (e.g. to landfill)
- Explore alternative outlets/uses for the plastic waste generated in your manufacturing processes.
Not able to attend? There will also be events in:
Tuesday 9th July 16.30 – 19:30: 3M BIC Centre, Huddersfield
Wednesday 18th September 08.00 – 10.30: Henry Royce Institute, Manchester
Find out more about these sessions here.
Also, if you are a solution provider for the challenges listed, we want to understand your capabilities and connect you to those who need help.
