WCEF Side Event: Organic innovation: Lessons about growing circular economy companies from the organics collection and processing field

  • 22 Sep 2021
  • 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
  • virtual


Registration is closed

A growing number of companies around the world are repurposing what we used to call “waste” into new and higher-value products. An exciting example of this is in the area of organics, where companies are taking post-consumer food materials and turning them into products as diverse as biofuels, renewable natural gas, and plastics – in addition to more traditional compost. As growing populations and industries produce more organic by-products each year, how are companies taking advantage of this opportunity to deliver environmental and economic benefits? 

This event will bring together parties that collect and sort organics and those that process them to extract value to discuss their innovative approaches and the challenges they face in a real-life example of a circular economy value chain.
