Enhancing Recycling Practices: Call for Abstracts – Advanced Recycling Conference (ARC) 2024

Uniting industry leaders and stakeholders across all waste value chains

Taking place on 20-21 November 2024 in Cologne, Germany and online, the Advanced Recycling Conference 2024 showcases the latest developments in advanced recycling technologies, recycling-based renewable chemicals, building- blocks, monomers, and polymers. The unique concept of presenting novel recycling solutions and related topics at one event guarantees a comprehensive and exciting conference experience, covering technologies such as extrusion, dissolution, solvolysis, enzymolysis, pyrolysis, thermal depolymerisation, gasification, and incineration with Carbon Capture Utilisation (CCU) as well as pre- and post-processing technologies and digital solutions. With an impressive increase of almost 30% to nearly 300 participants from 26 countries in 2023, the event has established itself as the leading conference for innovation in recycling.

The recycling sector faces significant evolutionary pressure due to ambitious targets set by the EU, the chemical industry, brand commitments, but also customer demands. On one hand, substantial portions of non-recycled waste streams must be addressed, while on the other, markets display a growing demand and search for renewable feedstocks for chemicals and materials. Both equally foster discussions on optimal technology selection for various waste streams and methodologies for evaluating their environmental footprint.

As a result, advanced recycling technologies are rapidly evolving, with a continual influx of new entrants ranging from start-ups to industry giants. New facilities are under construction or expanding, while established providers are scaling up operations to achieve higher capacities and forge successful partnerships.

All hands on deck for maximum recycling impact

Keeping track of all these fast-paced developments proves to be difficult. The Advanced Recycling Conference therefore welcomes technology providers, related industries, waste management companies, brands, investors as well as policy makers and scientists working in the diverse and interdisciplinary field of recycling. By bringing together all relevant topics and experts, the event will provide a framework for new partnerships, ideas, approaches, and effective value chains.

To foster exchange, the conference includes plenty of opportunities for networking.
