With plastic use estimated to double by 2040 and negotiations for a UN treaty for plastic pollution underway, the time is now to tackle plastic waste.

Following the successful Ending Plastic Waste Symposium in 2023, we are partnering with the CSIRO and RMIT University as host of the ARC TREMS Hub to deliver the Ending Plastic Waste Symposium 2024 on Tuesday 6 August and Wednesday 7 August at Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.

As part of the symposium, we’ll cover: 

  • plastic design and materials
  • advances in recycling and resource recovery 
  • bioderived and compostable plastics 
  • plastic in the environment 
  • the life cycle of plastic 
  • product packaging and design 
  • circular economy and system perspectives 
  • international approaches

Registrations are now open and will close Sunday 4 August 2024.
