The 2013 Plasticity conference will be held in Hong Kong in early June, which will focus on the plastic waste problem. The first conference was held on United Nations Sustainable Development Forum in the same term last year.
This conference will be held on June 6. It will explore the solution to the problem of waste plastics. The keynote speakers include Lu Gonghui, the deputy director of Hong Kong Environmental Protection Bureau, and Mike Biddle, founder of plastic recycling enterprise MBA in California and winner of Gothenburg Award for Sustainable Development.
This forum is organized by non-profit organization, Ocean Recovery Alliance, which has offices in California and Hong Kong. The focus of this league is problems of marine pollution, including waste plastics. The American Chemistry Council is also the partner support of this conference.
“By 2013, 40% of the world’s sea surface is covered by some form of floating plastic garbage, which is thought-provoking. More and more companies and organizations are paying attention to the solution to plastic waste problem”, said the organization.
The event will also include the speech of Bayer Material Science and Taiwan Plastic Industry Technology Development Center.
The sponsor said the major intent of this conference is to collect retailers, policy makers, manufacturers and other personages of all circles to discuss the problem.
