Reshaping Possibilities for Plastics:
Policy, Technology and End Markets
SPC Engage is an event focused on exploring a key theme in sustainable packaging and developing actionable takeaways to help drive industry progress. Following last year’s inaugural Engage events, SPC Engage Minneapolis 19’ and SPC Engage London 19’, the Sustainable Packaging Coalition’s SPC Engage 2020 event in North America will head to Montreal on June 17-18. SPC Engage Montreal will be centered around the theme of Reshaping Possibilities for Plastics, looking at sustainability challenges and opportunities for plastics overall, with a special focus on flexibles and other hard-to-recycle plastics. Through tours, speakers, panels, and hands-on workshops, SPC Engage Montreal will explore what policy, technology and market levers can be pulled to reshape the possibilities for plastics.
Core topics that the event will cover include:
- Global policy context and regulatory developments in Canada
- Status and potential of voluntary commitments and industry projects on recovery of hard-to-recycle plastics
- Films and flexible packaging recovery and next markets
- Recovery and end markets for polystyrene and non bottle PET
- Chemical recycling of different plastics
- Food waste – packaging nexus and the importance of recovering more packaging
SPC Engage Montreal attendees will gain an understanding of the landscape in policy and regulations on a North American and European level; what are the best recovery and market strategies for hard-to-recycle plastics; what are the best strategies to recover more film and what do next markets for flexibles and films look like; the expanding role of chemical recycling and ultimately, how to create innovative products that after introduction can be kept in the economy and are recyclable.
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth
Perfectly located in the heart of downtown Montreal, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth has a fascinating history that unravels through a "for Montrealers, by Montrealers" concept featuring a restaurant, a bar, an urban market and a coffee shop where local products and talents take center stage.
Named after Queen Elizabeth II, the Fairmont boasts an impressive line-up of famous guests, from the likes of Jimmy Carter, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama and Queen Elizabeth II herself. Of those who have stayed in this historical establishment, the most famously referenced are John Lennon and Yoko Ono, who carried out their “Bed-in-for-Peace” in 1961, where they protested for peace around the world from Suite 1742.
