A Systems Analysis of Plastics in the Global Economy – Webinar

This REMADE project has assembled a team of systems analysis (SA) researchers and industry partners to carry out this exploratory project. The project is lead by David R. Shonnard, Department of Chemical Engineering, Sustainable Futures Institute, Michigan Technological University.

The webinar will present an introduction to the global waste plastics problem, (PET and olefin plastics - polyethylene, polypropylene) contrast linear versus circular economy for plastics and summarize the REMADE exploratory project goals and tasks.

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.
