European Sustainable Plastics Congress Gets The Latest On CIRC-PACK

The CIRC-PACK project was featured for an international audience this month, at the first European Sustainable Plastics Congress in Lyon, France. Organised by France’s Plastipolis on 5 July 2018, the congress heard firsthand how CIRC-PACK innovations are shaping up.


CIRC-PACK’s innovative waste to resource approach was featured for an international scientific and industry audience in Lyon, France, at a new plastics congress organised by Plastipolis.


Held in partnership with the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, the Lyon event was the first of its kind, and is set to focus on European sustainable plastics for the foreseeable future.


The CIRC-PACK project was presented by David Zambrana of CIRCE, as he focused on a new circular economy for the plastic packaging sector. Further presentations on CIRC-PACK were made by Alessandro d’Elicio of Italy’s Novamont and Ana Mafalda Gomes of Bumaga in the Netherlands. Here the congress heard firsthand the concepts behind CIRC-PACK’s first two ‘demo cases’: producing plastics from renewable resources, and eco-friendly packaging designs.
