Closing the Loop: Unlocking Singapore’s Plastic Materials Flow

Conference Day 2021

In recent years, the term ‘plastics’ has become somewhat of a rallying call in driving advocacy efforts against the environmental impact of plastic waste on a global scale. Designed as a cyclical closed-loop system that minimises excess, the shift towards a circular economy model presents the most opportunities in extracting value from plastic waste and most important, keeping it out of the environment.

In line with the government’s drive towards a Zero Waste Nation, as outlined in the Zero Waste Masterplan, it has become ever more pressing for us to build upon the expertise of all stakeholders in this ecosystem on the development of our domestic plastic recycling industry.

Bringing together the entire plastic value chain including energy & chemical companies, waste managements, recyclers, brand owners, Government agencies and NGOs, today’s forum brings together all related stakeholders in a dialogue on how we can advance the agenda for a sustainable future.
