About this Event

Of the 300 over million tonnes of plastics produced each year, less than 10 percent gets recycled. What happens to the rest? Some get sent to landfills where, when left to degrade, can leach harmful chemicals that spread into groundwater. Some are washed out through rivers into the oceans where they break down into microplastics that today is found in everything we eat and drink.

In Singapore, 7 out of 10 people do not know what plastics can be recycled and only about 6 percent of plastic waste end up being recycled. Can plastics-to-fuel technology (PTFT) be a potential pathway to resolving the plastic problem? Plastic-to-fuel technology is being increasingly hailed as a solution to the Southeast Asia plastic problem. But the pros and cons of using pyrolysis to convert plastic waste into high quality gasoline or diesel-like fuel are still highly debatable.

The fireside chat aims to:~ Introduce what PTFT is about;~ Illustrate the workings of a PTFT project in Southeast Asia; ~ Be a discussion amongst representatives from Climate Change Strategy, Consulting, and Consumer Brands.

A networking tea session follows the fireside chat - An excellent opportunity for the science and business to meet and exchange ideas!
