Waste is only a resource in the wrong place
Amongst recently introduced environmental legislation, the UK government announced the first Environment Bill in over 20 years; likely to bring together two significant strategic themes at the top of the UK and European green agenda – the growing Circular Economy momentum and the reformation of agricultural policy. In the cross hairs of these themes are petrochemical based fertilisers; an acknowledgement that the bio side of the economy is finally being prioritised.

21 st Century Waste – Deposit Return, Digital Printing & Smart Bins
Packaging is waste and waste is packaging. The arrival of high volume digital printing opened the door to a revolution in post consumption packaging management. Empty packaging carrying a deposit provokes better consumer responsibility around disposal. Smart Bins generate an inventory of items they contain and exclude contamination. Collectors and recyclers premium process known items from identified producers providing auditable proof of sustainable packaging end-life management that feeds into producers marketing campaigns.

Disrupting Workwear Waste
Re:Form is part of CCORRN, Cambridgeshire Community Reuse and Recycling Network, a social enterprise working with companies and local authorities to provide community reuse and remanufacturing. Working with Veolia UK and their clients to create Circularity Through Positive Procurement whilst achieving additional socio environmental impact. We will share our rethinking procurement, from commissioning new workwear to purchasing re manufactured products made from the uniforms that were unsuitable for reuse.

Future Skills needs for sustainability and circular economy
The pace of change is not letting up; the need to be more circular for both those who produce and those who manage waste and resources will not wait for the slowest to catch up. Skills development must keep up with these changes. This seminar will explore the changes and how technology is being and can be used to maximise the impact of the circular economy. It will explore the opportunities but also the threats that inaction will bring

Evolving the Plastics Market.
The use of plastics has grown exponentially, with global production rising from 15 million metrics tons in 1964 to 311 in 2014. Single-use plastic products representing, 25% of total volume and 95% of value. And, whilst the intended life is typically less than a year, the material can live on for centuries. The benefits of plastics have come at a price. Now is the time to re-think and innovate.

There’s no such thing as waste coffee grounds!
bio-bean was founded on the premise that there’s no such thing as waste, just resources in the wrong place. Spent coffee grounds are highly calorific and contain valuable compounds, making them ideal for processing into a range of sustainable and innovative bio-products – from biochemicals containing flavours, fragrances and colourants to alternative biofuels for industrial and domestic use, bio-bean share their journey from laboratory to the world’s first coffee reprocessing factory.

David Palmer-Jones - SUEZ Recycling, Stuart Hayward-Higham - Recovery UK
The UK waste and resources sector is about to go through a transition like never before. This report will look at what will need to be delivered to meet the new policy landscape, the costs to be borne and by which actors, institutions and stakeholders. However, the value to be generated in terms of social, economic and environmental improvements are potentially large, and understanding the upsides and who benefits will be critical in ensuring future services and infrastructure are in place in time for the transition.

Advancing plastics recycling by combining mechanical and feedstock recycling approaches
The UK recycles less than 10% of its plastic waste on UK shores. There is an urgent need for the development of plastics recycling capacity in the UK to meet the growth in demand for recycled content in packaging and product manufacture and to address the opportunity created by the closure of Asian import markets. With mechanical and feedstock recycling, could the UK recycle almost all its plastics on shore?

Context of the work on flexible packaging
Research by WRAP into the composition of current flexible packaging has demonstrated that much more of the materials are recycleable than initially expected. So what's next? Find out how industry bodies, producers and waste management firms see the future possibilities of circular economy solutions affecting our every-day items and their flexible packaging.
