Carbon dioxide or Crops? What is the Future of Plastics in a Sustainable Society?

Jordbruk
Hållbarhetsveckan 2019
Interest in biobased plastics as a sustainable alternative is increasing. But what materials are most sustainable, efficient and viable to use? Welcome to an event exploring the possibilites of using residues from agriculture, or even carbon dioxide, to produce plastics in way that avoids food insecurity and negative climate impacts in the future.

During the event, organised by STEPS - Sustainable Plastics and Transition Pathways, we will highlight barriers and opportunities of using residues from agriculture to produce plastics, and present carbon dioxide as a controversial alternative. Could we be close to a future where carbon dioxide is seen as a valuable resourece instead of only a dangerous gas?

The event will end with a question and answer session with the audience. 

Panel participants 

Moderator, Ellen Palm, Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, LTH, Lund University.

The event is open and free of charge. It will be held in English.
