GPCA webinar – the future of plastics: circular economy and CO2 scenarios
Virginia Janssens, Managing Director PlasticsEurope speaking at GPCA Webinar. This edition of the GPCA Webinar Series will explore the key trends transforming the future of plastics.
The next edition of the GPCA Webinar Series will explore the key trends transforming the future of plastics. BloombergNEF analysts will present the emissions pathways for the plastics industry and look at the potential impact of circular economy on feedstock and oil demand growth.
Key themes to be addressed at the webinar:
Policy drivers in key markets:
Outlining global policy trends (e.g. recycled content laws, plastic taxes, EPR schemes) to provide an understanding of how the policy landscape will change for plastics.
Techno-economic analysis of advanced recycling:
Assessing the viability of recycling assets from BNEF’s project finance model Economics of depolymerization and pyrolysis technologies as well as their sensitivities to different financial variables.
Impact of circular economy on feedstock and oil demand growth:
Highlighting the impact of different circular economy trends — like demand substitution, bioplastics, and recycling — can have on oil demand and upstream petrochemicals.
Emissions pathways for the plastics industry:
Long-term view on expected emissions from the production of commodity plastics (PE, PP, PET) to change between now and 2050 under different scenarios that bring together different circular economy trends.
