Plastics Tomorrow via Biobased Chemicals & Recycling (New Jersey, United States - June 25-28th 2018) - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Plastics Tomorrow via Biobased Chemicals & Recycling" conference has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

While most major corporations around the world have escalated their efforts in recent years on improving the Environmental Impact & Sustainability via several routes, some BREAK-THROUGH concepts have only lately emerged. For example, (1) converting & forest waste into chemicals; the latter besides numerous uses serve as Building-Blocks for plastics and (2) reducing-capturing-converting the harmful greenhouse gases (CO2 and CH4) into chemicals. Of course, handling plastics waste will always be of utmost importance and continuous advancements in recycling are being made. All these revolutionary concepts take environment/sustainability efforts to new heights.

Join us to witness how the field of Polymers & Chemicals is being rejuvenated via Non-Fossil Raw-Materials that are (1) Biobased-Sustainable or (2) Air-Land-Ocean Pollutants"; thereby leading to preservation of petroleum resources, reduction of air-land-ocean pollution, and utilization of free/undesirable raw materials.
