Concurrent Session: Putting Marine Plastics to Work in the Supply Chain (Technical Track)

Tuesday, May 19th
1:30pm to 3:00pm

Major efforts are underway across the globe to remove plastic marine debris from the environment. Aside from landfilling this material or incinerating it, what can be done with it? This session will feature panelists that are leading research on the recycling of these materials and explore strategies for aggregating meaningful volumes of materials from otherwise isolated clean-up efforts.
