On 15th June 2022, Innovate UK KTN, the UK Circular Plastics Network, and the Royal Society of Chemistry will be hosting an online event from 10:00 - 15:00 titled "Plastics from Cradle to Grave and Resurrection III".
This free online event brings together regulatory, academic and industrial speakers to stimulate discussion on the challenges and opportunities for researchers, industry and government. There are two thematic sessions on consequences of the drive to recycle plastics. The first covers micro-plastics in the environment, their toxicology and associated risk assessment. The second explores the complex issue of the toxicological significance of chemical migration from recycled plastics in food contact materials. This event follows on from the successful conferences held in 2021 and 2019 and has been organised to expand on the key themes.
The event will run virtually from 10:00 – 15:00.
