The consumption of plastics has increased tremendously during the last decades. Globally almost 400 million tons of plastics are annually produced. At the same pace as production, also plastic waste generation increases and therewith associated challenges rise. Despite the manifold advantages of plastics during their use phase, their optimal management after their end of life is still heavily discussed. In the frame of the first VIRWa Trashtalk renowned experts from academia and industry will elaborate on an appropriate management of plastic waste.
