Join the 'Plastic, construction and bio-waste - too valuable to waste' session at Mannheim2020

2 September 2020

Cities around Europe are piloting and implementing solutions to become more circular. Plastic, construction and bio-waste are three of the waste streams cities are seeking to reduce or reuse due to their environmental impact and socio-economic value. Which levers do cities have to effectively close these materials loops?

This will be the focus of the session Plastic, construction and bio-waste - too valuable to waste at the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns - Mannheim2020 (30 Sept - 2 Oct), in which the PlastiCircle approach will also be presented and discussed. In this session, we will hear the experience of three cities that have got down to the job of moving from a linear to a circular economy regarding these three waste streams. What have they done? What did they learn? Can their solutions be replicated elsewhere? Moderated by Ashima Sukhdev, Government & Cities Programme Lead at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the audience will also be invited to challenge speakers.
