Global Research and Innovation in Plastics Sustainability (GRIPS) 2021

Tuesday, 16 - Thursday, 18 Mar 2021


Global Research and Innovation in Plastics Sustainability (GRIPS) is a free to attend virtual conference, exhibition and showcase that will be held on 16-18 March 2021. Organised and run by KTN, supported by UKRI, hosted by UK Circular Plastics Network, GRIPS will bring together companies and individuals to highlight the best of the UK and selected international activities that will lead to plastics being less likely to reach landfill, end up incinerated, or become fugitive in the environment.

Research and innovation from both the academic and industrial community will be showcased. The event will provide a platform to help develop commercial success of these developments and build links within the polymer/plastics supply chain to strengthen the offer to UK and wider international actors in application sectors such as plastic packaging/FMCG, construction, agriculture, textiles, healthcare, etc. 

Meet the NCC

Tim Young, Head of Sustainability at the NCC, will be speaking about end-of-life scenarios for GFRP and about our Sustainable Composites partnership with CPI.
