What Can Your Business do to Reduce Plastic Waste? – Challenges and Solutions

Event Venue and Description – National Graphene Institute, University of Manchester, 3 Booth Street East, Manchester

Plastic is an incredibly versatile material that brings many benefits to society.  It has a range of unique properties that enable our modern lifestyle.  However, recent discoveries, research and media coverage has left no doubt about the increasing volume of plastic waste in our environment and the damage that irresponsibly discarded plastic can do.

The plastics industry, businesses, government, consumers and wider society all want the same thing: to reduce plastic waste and leave the environment in a better place for generations to come.  There is now an opportunity for the UK to create value from plastic waste, develop and implement new technologies and business models in order to enhance its plastic recovery infrastructure, develop more sustainable businesses, and establish and embed a culture that re-uses and recycles used materials wherever possible.

Are you a business who:

  • Designs, makes, uses, discards, re-uses, recycles plastics or plastic containing products?
  • Wants to find out more about government funded initiatives to work sustainably with plastics?
  • Wants to find out more about what expertise, capabilities and support the Sir Henry Royce Institute can offer?
  • Want to hear from local businesses working sustainably with plastics?
  • Want to learn about recent innovations and technology developments?
  • Is interested in discussing the challenges you have or expecting to have to work sustainably with plastics?
  • Is interested in discussing solutions/innovations you have or are developing to work sustainably with plastics?

Then you are invited to register for this event which is hosted by the Henry Royce Institute at the University of Manchester and delivered by the UK Circular Plastics Network, a programme supported by UKRI and KTN, and forms part of the Plastics Research Innovation Fund.
