Free for SPI Members/ $299 NonMembers
The SPI Bioplastics Council is hosting a webinar which challenges the widely held perception that the biobased plastics industry is inextricably linked to and dependent on the emergence of a robust biorefining industry. The webinar will:
•Address important differences between today's world v. years ago when the petrochemicals industry was linked to and dependent on a petroleum refining industry whose major target was fuels.
•Examine these differences from several angles and the implications which could enable biobased plastics to grow independently of biofuels.
•Address the concept that a commercially viable scale for biobased plastics can be much smaller than a commercially viable scale for biofuels.
•Discuss economic, societal and environmental challenges as the biobased plastics industry develops.
•Provide an overview of industry-driven efforts to navigate toward a future with a more sustainable biobased plastics industry.
