The “Plastics for Cleaner Planet” conference has been added to’s offering.

With U.S. President Biden rejoining the world leaders as per Paris-2015 agreement, there is a renewed aggressive push on addressing “Global Warming” via de-emphasis on fossil fuels.

Concurrent issues to be addressed are “Land Pollution / Ocean Pollution and Sustainability of Raw-Materials for the Polymer Industry”.


Driven by consumer awareness, brand owners are pushing the manufacturers to respond with technology that takes Sustainability & Environmental impact to new heights, for example,

  • Transitioning from traditional fossil based raw-materials to Renewable BioMass / Waste(s) / GreenHouse Gas (GHG) Emissions, and Recycled Petro/Bio based Plastics as raw-materials (M, mass)
  • Cycling into Valued Products, that is, Durability as opposed to BioDegradation or Disposal, via Recycling / BioFuels / Composites / Incineration (C, cycling).
