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.
Polymers have transformed our lives  . We have been benefiting from them since approximately 1600 BC when natural rubber was first discovered. However, plastic products are often mismanaged once they reach the end of life. The solutions we need rely on a whole systemic and structural change within the plastic system.
