The 2023 edition of Plastdagen (Plastic Day in English), held in Trondheim’s Dokkhuset, was a testament to the shared commitment of industry, academia, and scientific research to address the environmental impacts of plastics and pave the way for a sustainable future.
Recycling is no new practice. It has been a common practise around the world for thousands of years. In my PhD project, I investigate how parchment from dismembered Latin books was recycled in various ways in Iceland after the introduction of the Reformation in 1550. These parchment fragments provide important insights in a lost chapter of Icelandic book history.
