20 companies from Québec and Canada will take part in the upcoming International Québec-France Forum on Plastics solutions, presented by Éco Entreprises Québec and Citeo
Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) is proud to underline that 20 representatives from Québec and Canadian companies as well as various government officials will be part of the firs International Québec-France Forum on innovations in plastic recycling solutions, to be held in Paris on February 4 and 5, 2019. The ÉEQ delegation shares the ambition to facilitate and implement winning conditions for the deployment of innovative technologies in the recycling of plastic packaging.
Presented jointly with ÉEQ’s French counterpart, Citeo, the Forum, titled “Plastics Solutions: Innovations in recycling on both sides of the Atlantic”, will welcome over 300 participants from Canada and Europe. In direct alignment with the goals set forth in the Ocean Plastics Charter signed by G7 nations, the Forum offers an innovative collaborative approach that brings together manufacturers, corporations, recyclers and investors in order to effect true change in the search for solutions.
“On this rare occasion, all parties involved in the plastics chain will come together. We are convinced that such an important mobilization targeting a world-wide issue will help introduce innovative solutions. Moreover, the companies, whom we represent and who use and market these plastic packaging products, are also part of that solution”, said Maryse Vermette, ÉEQ President and CEO.
Establishing relations between ambitious participants and innovative projects
The Forum’s program will enable participants to meet individually with 13 cutting-edge start-ups in the area of plastics recycling: APK (Germany), Carbios (France), Demeto (Italy/Switzerland), Fraunhofer IVV (Germany), Garbo (Italy), IFP Énergies nouvelles (France), Ioniqa Technologies (Netherlands), JEPLAN (Japan), Loop Industries (Canada), Polystyvert (Canada), PureCycle Technologies (United States of America), Pyrowave (Canada) and Recycling Technologies (United Kingdom). A complete dossier on these project owners, including an introduction sheet on each of them, has been provided to participants.
Accelerating innovation in the area of plastics recycling
G7 countries have set the ambitious goal of recycling 100% of all plastics by 2040. There are over 150 million tonnes of plastic residue in the planet’s oceans, making plastics recycling a truly urgent world matter. Innovative recycling technologies, in conjunction with existing methods, will enable us to reach those goals.
