Carbon dioxide or Crops? What is the Future of Plastics in a Sustainable Society?
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.
- Christian Hulteberg, Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University, presents pros and cons with using carbon dioxide as a feedstock for making plastic products. What could and should the future look like?
- Johanna Lund, RISE, presents on crops and residues from crops, is it a good or bad way forward to use residues to produce plastics?
- Tobias Nielsen, Department of Political Science, Lund University, presents on plastics and governance: what is needed to initiate processes and structures to transition to a society where plastic is used sustainably?
The event is open and free of charge. It will be held in English.
STEPS is a research programme with a vision of a future society where plastics are sustainably produced, used and recycled.
