May 10 - May 11


“Global Research and Innovation in Plastics Sustainability is a live in-person conference, offering 3x separate conference streams, all packed with thought leadership and educational talks across a plethora of industry sectors that use plastics and polymers in the mainstream of their business.” (GRIPS, 2022)

“The event will provide a platform to help develop the commercial success of these developments and build links within the polymer/plastics supply chain to strengthen the offer to the UK and wider international actors in application sectors such as plastic packaging/FMCG, textiles, construction; legislation; agriculture; healthcare; net zero; marine plastics; chemical recycling’ sustainable design; innovation opportunities in global markets; plastic packaging; and many more. With the forthcoming Plastics Packaging Tax, extended producer responsibility (EPR) and deposit return schemes being on the near horizon, the adoption at scale of the innovations that will have an impact in the UK and worldwide are of great importance.” (GRIPS, 2022)
