There’s much discussion about the place of plastics in our future economy. Many applications of single use plastic could be eliminated or substituted, while plastic will remain an important material for some applications. We’ve been informed and inspired by the work of some of the area’s leading businesses, and by the collaborative approach being taken by the Port of Amsterdam and stakeholders to develop a circular approach to plastics that adds value to the materials and the local economy. We believe there is potential for a similar approach here. This event is a first step.
