As we welcome in 2023, a mix of policy, material bans, and treaties will continue to shape the recycling landscape. As a result, OEM’s will increasingly rely upon their partners for guidance on responsible product development. In this session, we will review trends to watch this year and discuss how a converter can prepare to assist a client who asks for help with making a plastic part ‘sustainable.
