A Systems Analysis of Plastics in the Global Economy: 2020 Update

Dr. David Shonnard, Director of the Sustainable Futures Institute, Michigan Technological University, will present an introduction to the global waste plastics problem, (PET and olefin plastics - polyethylene, polypropylene) and contrast linear versus circular economy for plastics. These polymeric materials are currently recycled at low rates in the U.S., but are among the largest volumes of polymeric materials that are recyclable. Dr. Shonnard will also summarize his REMADE-funded project goals in an update to REMADE’s July 2019 webinar.
