Enabling the Circular Economy through recycling feedstocks

Resource extraction and processing contribute to about half of global greenhouse gas emissions and are responsible for 90% of biodiversity loss and water stress, according to the UNEP Global Resource Outlook 2019. Exploring the use of waste materials and gases as novel feedstocks to recycle and reuse carbon and slow the extraction of raw materials has been on the agenda for many years. This panel will look at concrete examples from companies who are making cost-competitive and renewably-sourced chemicals from wood, cellulose, other non-food plant resources and waste gases and trying to close the loop for a more circular economy.
