THE OECD DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH A CONFERENCE ON THE CIRCULAR BIOECONOMY:
GUESTS FROM JAPAN, USA, FRANCE, FINLAND, NORWAY, SWEDEN, BELGIUM AND ITALY
European Strategy for plastics and its developments; the most advanced experiences of the circular bioeconomy in OECD countries and Industry 4.0 applied to waste management and use; the protection, recovery and reuse of water resources. These are just a few of the issues at the centre of the flagship events of the next edition (the 22nd) of Ecomondo, organized by Italian Exhibition Group, from 6th to 9th November 2018 at Rimini Expo Centre.
The international flagship events will involve a large number of Italian and foreign speakers among the most qualified in the various sectors. The panel is conceived by the technical-scientific committee to ensure the in-depth coverage of the hottest topics in the various evolving sectors of the green & circular economy.
On Wednesday 7th November the conference entitled How to Implement the European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy, will set itself the objective of giving a boost to the European Strategy for Plastics launched by the European Commission in February of this year, the first developments of which have been seen recently with the Brussels directive that bans drinking straws, cotton buds and other plastic products.
The conference will address the industry of biobased and biodegradable plastics as well as that of traditional plastic, which must face the market’s new challenges.
Organization is by the Ecomondo technical-scientific committee and Legambiente, along with Assobioplastiche, Corepla, Federchimica, PasticsEurope Italia, Enea and Res Urbis H2020 project
Circular bioeconomy is by no means new terrain for the OECD. The international organism is taking part directly in Ecomondo with the event Circular Bioeconomy: National Case Studies of Innovation Ecosystems. By means of the participation of top exponents of the respective countries, a comparison will be possible between the cases of Japan, USA, France, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Belgium and, obviously, Italy. The event will be chaired by OECD representative James Philip and Philippe Mengal, executive director of the BBI JU, the European Union's public-private joint undertaking dedicated to developing the bioeconomy in Europe.
