8. CYCLEtalk

Zurich Campus Hagenholzstrasse 85A, 8050 Zurich

The "CYCLEtalk" - our information and exchange platform

As part of the realCYCLE project, we organized regular CYCLEtalks for registered interested stakeholders, in which we highlighted the latest project developments, presented new findings and discussed new issues.

The eighth CYCLEtalk is on the one hand dedicated to new projects of realcycle GmbH, on the other hand we could win exciting speakers with inputs from our environment. There will be exciting insights into the food approval of secondary plastics, the life cycle assessment of chemical plastic recycling processes, and Swiss and European legislation. We will also bring two exciting updates on the work in the network.

We are particularly pleased to welcome the participants of the APPOLL Forum to CYCLEtalk. The APPOLL Forum has achieved its main goal of building a platform that brings together and networks stakeholders with a focus on plastics. With the transfer of the APPOLL Forum into realcycle - and thus into the CYCLEtalks - the focus will be broadened and lifted from the current detailed level (plastic pollution) to the system level of a sustainable circular economy. We warmly welcome the APPOLL community and look forward to the journey and collaboration together.
