Sustainable Feedstocks for the Future of Chemicals & Plastics Asia
17-18 Oct 2023, Bangkok
(Co-locate with 15th Bioplastics Market, 18-19 Oct 2023, Bangkok)
The future of chemicals and plastics relies heavily on the adoption of sustainable feedstocks. These feedstocks should be renewable, environmentally friendly, and capable of reducing reliance on fossil fuels. Several key areas of focus include waste-to-chemicals, plastics waste recycling, the feedstock supply chain, biomass & CO2 utilization, and more!
To drive the adoption of these sustainable feedstocks in Asia, governments, industries, and research institutions need to collaborate and invest in research, development, and implementation of new technologies. Additionally, policy frameworks, incentives, and regulations that encourage the use of renewable feedstocks can further accelerate the transition towards a more sustainable future for chemicals and plastics in Asia.

Brand owners increasingly see chemical recycling as a necessary complement to mechanical recycling if they are to accomplish ambitious targets for a circular economy over the next decade. Several technology providers are working to create new technologies to overcome the limitations of current pyrolysis process and commercialize several alternative approaches to chemical recycling of plastics.
