      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.

      David Thomas - Mintfinity (Clean Up Britain partner)

      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.

      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
