Circular Economy Overview: Challenges and Opportunities for Industry

On July 2, 2014, the EU Commission communicated on a “circular economy in support of a sustainable growth.” Since then, regulatory action has started with the update of the “EU Waste Framework Directive” and the communication of the EU roadmap on the “analysis of the interface between chemicals, products and waste legislation and identification of policy options.” There is much more to come with Ecodesign, secondary raw materials and priority areas like plastics, critical raw materials, construction and demolition, biomass and bio based products. During this session, the EU Circular Economy initiative will be presented in more details to equip attendees with a good understanding of what this regulatory initiative is about. The industry perspective will also be presented. Challenges and opportunities of Circular Economy for the Chemical Industry will be highlighted.
