This year’s edition of GPCA Plasticon will focus on the changing regulatory environment and pressures on the plastics industry to adopt more sustainable practices that reduce plastic waste in landfills and the oceans and help realize the superior environmental benefits that plastics has to offer. Leading global FMCG brand owners such as Unilever and P&G have recently pledged to move fully to 100% recycled and recyclable packaging material in the coming years. It is important for the industry to join hands with brand owners in order to innovate solutions that greatly reduce the adverse environmental impacts of plastic waste.
The GPCA PlastiCon is an annual event that caters to the plastics segment of the petrochemical industry. The conference provides up to date views and trends and developments in the regional and global plastics industry including detailed information on specific trending topics. GPCA PlastiCon also hosts the GPCA Plastics Excellence Awards, recognizing innovation in plastics conversion and allied industries. The first edition of PlastiCon was held in 2010.
