NatureWorks has partnered with the Ocean Recovery Alliance to support and enable the Plasticity 2013 forum in Hong Kong June 6. The event follows on from a successful launch of Plasticity at the RIO+20 Earth Summit last year. This one day forum is a unique, action and solutions oriented event, with both the private and public sectors focused on the opportunities that are presenting themselves in the world of plastic and its value as a secondary resource. Plasticity Rio explored innovations and solutions that leaders in their respective industries and communities are undertaking, and the Hong Kong event will continue this emphasis, with new examples coming out of Asia, in terms of closed loop systems, innovative designs, and new processes.
