Ocean Plastic International Matchmaking Event is a networking event dedicated to creating contacts to potential investors, customers, suppliers, developers, and cooperative partners within the emerging ocean plastic industry. It is an alternative to traditional conferences where the right people can often be difficult to find.
At the event, participants have the opportunity to prebook online meetings with participating companies, thus maximizing efficiency. Participants include companies and institutions spanning all levels of the supply chain.
The purpose of the Business2Business event is to offer the frames for short personal meetings between your company and potential business or development partners. By joining the event you will be able to meet companies of your own choice. Each meeting lasts 30 minutes and you have the possibility to plan a maximum of 14 meetings.
Price: DKK 400,- + VAT. Euro 54 (members of Ocean Plastic Forum participate without charge).
Organiser behind the event is Ocean Plastic Forum - a partner and member organization working towards developing technologies and business models for collecting plastic from the ocean, rivers, seashores, harbors, and waters globally.
The aim is to improve the environment in the aquatic sphere and along the shores by recovering the plastic. The aim is also to cycle the recovered plastic as high as possible in the value chain with the largest possible plastic quantities recycled into new products, alternatively, technologies that convert the plastic so it can be recycled in the form of monomer recovery / new polymers.

IS NO MORE THAN THE CHOICES WE MAKE TODAY - ADAPT
would urge those who do care about out planet to lobby politicians for
common sense, starting with you local MP.
A growing number of corporations are now pushing for a sustainable economy.
all need to think about changing to a circular economy
security and sustainable recycling of waste as hard points, but also
cleaning up the mess we have created.
of you who saw what was going on and just stood on the sidelines, will have their great grand children
to answer to. Many great civilizations have exhausted their natural
resources. The ancient Egyptians, Incas and Aztecs. Your contribution will
be a pyramid of plastic, for what is left of humanity to wonder at.
