2nd ICIS Recycled Polymers Conference

Fairmont Millenium Park, Chicago, IL. 
| Conference: 8-9 November 2023

Circular economy in action: Advancing the plastic recycling revolution


Amid a shifting regulatory landscape and the looming threat of non-compliance, the circular economy has become one of the biggest priorities for the plastics value chain. As brand owners strive to meet their commitments and regulatory mandates, the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) content is projected to escalate significantly in the coming years whilst demand for virgin plastic remains robust.

Join us in Chicago on the 8-9 November where we’ll delve into pressing topics of the industry to provide you with compelling case studies, insightful takeaways and knowledge to drive future change. 

The conference provides a platform for delegates to engage with prevalent market trends, regulatory stipulations and sustainability initiatives that are redefining the industry landscape. Be part of the solution and connect with peers to find new opportunities that will drive us towards a sustainable future.
