The TMG held an online symposium in March regarding plastic recycling technologies together with the Plastic Packaging Recycling Council, a consortium of companies that are related to plastic containers and packaging.
The symposium introduced a variety of advanced technologies for both material and chemical recycling from Japan and beyond, and also the future prospects of sustainable use of plastics achieving carbon neutrality.

Plastic is an excellent material and is essential for things such as food preservation. On the other hand, plastics that become marine debris are posing an increasing risk of significant impact on marine ecosystems, making global initiatives urgently required.
We hope that these discussions will help determine how we, on a global scale, can sustainably use plastics while taking into account international trends and the latest technological trends.
