The last few years have been marked by growing consumer concerns about plastic waste, new anti-plastic regulations, and major disruptions to waste markets and recycling. For the first time ever, these sustainability issues are a credible threat to the sustained growth of the plastics industry. Consumer brands and plastic producers must find a way to not only address these concerns but maintain product performance and convince the public at large that they are making meaningful change.

This webinar explores the technology options and future evolution of sustainable commodity plastics.
