Dublin, May 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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.

For its role in reducing GreenHouse Gas (GHG) emissions responsible for global warming, the Chemicals/Polymer industry has been innovating new processes and products. 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).

As a SYMBOLIC expression for the Endurance of Polymer Industry (E), the host propose:

E = MC2 .highlighting the greater role of Cycling

In response, a spirit of innovation in the field of chemicals/polymers is brewing; a phenomenon not seen in the chemical industry since the 1960s. Re-Shaping of Polymers/Plastics industry has already begun; join to witness the future!!!
