Workshop: Roadmap for a Circular Economy of Chemicals

Workshop: Roadmap for a Circular Economy of Chemicals

Over the last six months, our CircularChem Centre has engaged with stakeholders across the value chain to gather different perspectives on what a Circular Economy of Chemicals might look like by 2050, what opportunities there are to move away from fossil feedstocks, where conflicts/symbiosis with other sectors might arise, and what interventions could be put in place to accelerate the transition. This research has informed the Centre’s paper: “A Circular Economy of Chemicals Roadmap.”

To finalise this important piece of work, we would like to invite you to a collaborative road mapping workshop on Wednesday 24th January 2024. The Workshop is open to those that took part in the road mapping research as well as those that did not – all views are important to us.

This workshop is an opportunity for stakeholders to reflect on the information collected so far, and to identify and address any gaps, so that the Centre can publish the outcomes from the work in a useful format for the community.

Draft Agenda:

10.30 – 11.00 Arrival and Tea/Coffee
11.00 – 12.15 Circular Economy of Chemicals: The Situational Picture in 2023
12.15 – 13.00 Lunch and Networking

14.45 – 15.00 Break
15.00 – 16.30 Circular Economy of Chemicals: 2050 – How do we get there? The Action Plan


A draft copy of the paper will be circulated in advance and refreshments and lunch will be provided.

We very much hope that you will be able to participate, and look forward to hearing from you.
