The presentation is focused on microwave assisted chemical recycling process able to up-cycle the PET/polyester. The chemical recycling is not presented as one of the recycling methods but as a complementary technology to the mechanical recycling. The beneficial effect of this synergy is the potential terrific increase of the recycling rate because the chemical recycling is able to deal with contaminated and complicated packaging and garments.Continue reading “Circularity PET/Polyester evolution or revolution?”
by Carlos Monreal, CEO, Plastic Energy
We will discuss how Plastic Energy’s patented chemical recycling technology transforms end-of-life plastic waste into new virgin-quality plastics and also outline the opportunities for value-chain collaborations, and how these can contribute to a more circular economy for plastics, and a reduction in plastic waste.Continue reading “Chemical Recycling for the Circular Economy: Transforming Plastic Waste into Virgin-Quality Plastics”
A JakajimaTV interview with Jeroen Kelder, co-founder of Infinity Recycling.
Plastic production increased exponentially, from 2.3 million tons in 1950 to 488 million tons today. Production is expected to more than triple by 2050.

A JakajimaTV interview with Christine Levêque, Director Business Innovation for the business unit Benelux and Germany at SUEZ.
Christine explains why it is essential for the circularity of plastics to continue the industry efforts in redesigning multi-polymers into mono-polymer packaging.Continue reading “Why industry efforts in redesigning multi-polymers into mono-polymer packaging are important for plastics recycling – Interview with Christine Leveque, Suez (VIDEO)”
Since this conference is part of the Sustainable Materials series, speakers of this conference are being interviewed on JakajimaTV, the online TV channel of Jakajima on Youtube.
Maurizio Crippa is CEO of Gr3n and will be speaking at the chemical recycling session during the conference.Continue reading “Video interview with Maurizio Crippa”

There is a a widespread belief that Chemical Recycling processes allow to recycle the mechanically unrecyclable mixed polymer packaging. However thermo-chemical processes like Pyrolysis also need quality feedstock to produce quality oil !
The presentation will explain why it is essential for the circularity of plastics to continue the industry efforts in redesigning multi-polymers into mono-polymer packaging.Continue reading “Designing plastics packaging for chemical recycling”

Europe is at a crossroads for the way it manages plastic, plastic waste, and plastic waste trade. Plastic and plastic waste is traded worldwide. Exports from the EU to Asia have been a means to deal with insufficient recycling capacities in the EU. Waste import restrictions in China and Hong Kong have triggered a shift of exports to other countries.
Since some types of plastic waste have been added to the UN Basel Convention, the option of exporting plastic waste is becoming increasingly difficult, requiring to build a more robust and circular economy for plastic in Europe.Continue reading “Operationalisation of new plastic value chains for a circular economy”
Jakajima is closely following developments related to the Corona virus (COVID-19). We are in touch with specialised institutions, including the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), the Regional Health Service (GGD), the World Health Organisation and the related conference venue.
Any measures required will be taken in consultation with partners and following the guidelines issued by the RIVM and GGD. Our priority is always on safeguarding health and safety.
Unless otherwise advised and communicated by us, our conferences / events will take place as scheduled.
