About the workshop

Aim: Debunking myths around Compostable Packaging

Who should attend?
Brand owners, retailers, packaging producers and converters, policymakers, waste management companies, bioplastic manufacturers

Although compostable packaging has been around for some years, there are still many misunderstandings about their end of life and the benefits they can provide for the overall Circular Economy of Packaging. The aim of this workshop is to shed some light on some of the misunderstandings around these materials:

  • Do compostable plastics contaminate the mechanical recycling of conventional plastics?
  • Do compostable plastics leave Microplastic in compost?
  • Is there a lack of infrastructure for organic recycling of compostable plastics?
  • Are compostable plastics promoting or a solution for littering?
