This webinar will be presented by Anne Warner, Innovation Program Manager at Think Beyond Plastic.
Think Beyond Plastic is an innovation accelerator advancing the transition toward bio-based, bio-benign alternatives to conventional plastics. Since 2012, the organization has run an annual innovation challenge for new materials, consumer and business products and cloud-based services all reducing plastic pollution, and an affiliated incubator for 10-20 selected startups each year. This year’s Innovation Challenge, the Marine Plastics Innovation Challenge whose deadline for entries is 6 October 2017, is co-managed by UN Environment.
This hour-long webinar will examine:
Trends and lessons learned from five years of conducting the Innovation Challenge
Technologies that have emerged so far from the dozens of startups that Think Beyond Plastic has incubated
What the future could hold for alternatives to conventional plastics
