Featuring talk by Anna Sycheva (OptiCOM, Moscow, Russia)
The future of plastics in the circular world
Plastics have become an important pillar of the world economy, but not without drawbacks. A significant share of plastic waste is not recovered after use: it is landfilled, incinerated or leaks in the environment. Many countries and companies around the world have pledged to shift to a circular model for plastics, but continued innovation is required to make it a reality.
