8. CYCLEtalk

June 22, 2023

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 dedicated to new projects of realcycle GmbH on the one hand, and on the other hand we were able to attract exciting speakers with input from our environment. There will be exciting insights into the food approval of secondary plastics, the life cycle assessment of chemical plastics recycling processes and Swiss and European legislation. We are also bringing two exciting updates on our 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 establishing a platform that brings together and networks stakeholders with a focus on plastics. With the transfer of the APPOLL Forum to realcycle - and thus to the CYCLEtalks - the focus will be expanded and raised 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 our joint journey and collaboration.
